Join the BCA crime fightin​g team! The BCA has agents positioned across Minnesota, but we can’t be everywhere. That’s why we rely on you to come forward with information that may help solve a case, prevent a threatened crime, and help a family heal from ​or avoid a terrible loss.

There are a number of options for providing information to the BCA:

  • Call the BCA Tipline at 1-877-996-6222.
  • Email the BCA at bca.tips@state.mn.us. 
  • Use the BCA tip app to send information from your mobile device about threats of violence at schools or places of worship.

Thank you for stepping up to share what you know. Together, we can make a safer Minnesota.
