Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
The head of the German police force, Matthias Seeger, told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper that there have been a number of tip-offs from different sources.
tip-off = hint, secret information
Thanks for your efforts.
Yes, that's correct. It can also be a verb:

As a verb or noun? Or both?
