THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE OREGON STATE POLICE FISH AND WILDLIFE DIVISION
The Oregon State Police Fish & Wildlife Division is excited to share the launch of *OSP (*677) as fast & easy way to call an Oregon State Police Dispatch Center for Turn-In-Poachers (TIP) reporting of wildlife and/or habitat law violations or other suspicious activity from a mobile phone.
*OSP (*677) is a mobile phone direct call number established to provide the public with a quick, easy to remember number to use for non-emergency reporting of fish & wildlife violations, traffic safety, highway hazards & obstructions, minor crashes, and requests for assistance. *OSP is not an emergency number and 9-1-1 still remains the emergency number to call for an emergency. *OSP rings directly into the State Police Dispatch center and is answered by a live dispatcher 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In the event that you are in a rural area or cannot get through to *OSP, please continue to report poaching and/or suspicious activity to 1-800-452-7888 or email TIP@state.or.us. If you have an ODFW license or tag the TIP phone number is listed on the back of the document(s) should you forget the number.
