Is there something we need to look into? Have you noticed something in your neighborhood that other New Yorkers need to know about? Do you have documents, recordings, or correspondence you think we should see? If you know about something happening that needs public attention or is illegal, unethical, a conflict of interest or anything else that may be breaking the public trust, we want to hear from you.

Before you talk to us about something confidential or sensitive, we need you to be careful. Consider the device you’re using to contact us and who has administrative access to it. Make sure, for example, that you use a personal device, not one owned by your employer or agency.

Sensitive or Confidential Information

If you need additional anonymity and increased security, there are a few ways to contact us:

U.S. Mail

Sending documents or a thumb drive via U.S. mail is a very secure way to communicate. Generally speaking, the government cannot open it in transit without a warrant. For even greater security use a sidewalk mailbox instead of a company or agency mailroom, or a post office.

Our postal address is:

85 Broad St., 12th Floor
New York, NY 10004


A good, secure way to contact us digitally using a smartphone or computer is an application called Signal. It’s a lot like text messaging or WhatsApp but with more security. You can send us Signal messages at +1-929-609-8265. Please note that we typically monitor this number only during working hours.
