The Columbia Police Department operates a Drug Tip Line where callers can report suspicious activity and remain anonymous.
The phone line is paid for by Columbia business owner Stacey Hatcher Bishop. The last four digits of the hotline coincide with Stacey’s daughter’s name, Cally. Cally died on Jan. 28, 2019 at the age of 23 of a drug overdose.
Stacey urges everyone to call the tip line with information about illicit drug activity, even if the call is about a family member.
“I can promise you one thing…you would rather visit them in jail than the grave yard.”
