Welcome to our first-ever incident tip raffle giveaway. 
The purpose of these tip raffles is to help keep information flowing on incidents happening in and around Grays Harbor when our staff members are busy with family, sick, in meetings or even on vacation.  It is used to encourage scanner listening and accurate sharing of information.  

1.  Entry into the raffle and giveaways is free.
        A.  Each tip and submission qualifies a person for 1 entry, you can make more 
             than one tip, and each one will count as another entry. Each tip has to be a               different incident 
        B.  Entries must be made by using our website form.  Messages to the page do 
             not count as they cannot capture all of the details needed to enter you into

2.  Each entry must include an incident tip that is accurate, verifiable and includes all information needed. GHScanner staff can verify information in several ways – by monitoring scanner radio traffic at the time the entry when tip is made, as well as going through our recorded scanner radio traffic that is stored online and in our app for subscribers.
