CLEVELAND - Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and other city officials have announced a new tip line for the public.

The public will be able to call the tip line, 1-800-225-5324, to share information about suspicious activity.

Cleveland police say that the public's help with bring attention to things officers may not be immediately aware of and that help can lead to resolving issues more quickly.

Both Mayor Jackson and Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams began speaking about the tragedy in Dallas where 5 police officers were killed, and they said Cleveland has taken steps to protect their officers and the public even more.

"If you see something, say something," said Chief Williams.

Cleveland police are continuing to prepare as the Republican National Convention is only 10 days away, but Chief Williams said the tip line is not just for the RNC, it's going to be available now and after the RNC.

The tip line is being monitored by several agencies and the tips will be relayed to the correct divisions.
