Oakland Police are hoping a new tip line by email will encourage people to come forward with information about murder cases.

The department says people who send tips might get a returned email telling them their tip has been forwarded to an investigator. The department says all emails received will be anonymous.

The new email address is oaklandhomicide@oaklandnet.com.
