News Tips

Do you have a story idea or news tip? We want to hear from you! Here’s how to get in touch.

When contacting us electronically, always use a device you personally own. Avoid sending information from a network managed by your employer. Keep your apps and operating system updated, as these updates often contain important security updates that help keep systems safe.

Signal (recommended)

Have a confidential tip or a whistleblower complaint? Are you looking for a secure way to send documents?

Signal is a free, easy-to-use, encrypted messaging app that works on iOS, Android and desktop. The app retains almost no metadata, and it allows messages to disappear after they have been viewed. It is the most secure way to communicate and send files.

Add Open Vallejo on Signal: (707) 847-8398‬.
