INTRODUCING "TEXT-A-Tip"
Several area Crime Line programs have adopted a “Text- A-Tip” capability for use on mobile communication devices that ensures the same level of anonymity as that assured by Tipsters using the telephone Tip line.  Check out PROGRAMS for texting info for particpating programs. Also, there's an app for that. Tipsters can get the free "TipSoft" or "TipSubmit" on the Apple App Store or Android Market.

GETTING RESULTS
