The Leland Police Department will be launching tip411, an Internet-based tool that enables the public to text message-anonymous tips to police, and lets the police respond back, creating a two-way anonymous “chat” in both English and Spanish.
Tip411 is not a substitute for dialing 911. If you are calling in an emergency, you should always call 911 for an immediate response.
Reserved exclusively for public safety purposes and powered by CitizenObserver, a St. Paul, Minn. company, tip411 puts a powerful new crime-fighting tool into the hands of the Leland community for all ages and demographics.
This is part of the new focus of the Leland Police Department to actively engage the public and encourage the citizens play an active role in keeping neighborhoods and schools safer. Soon, every marked patrol vehicle will be outfitted with a decal bearing the tip code to send anonymous tips.
Starting next week, anyone with a cell phone can send an anonymous tip to the Leland Police Department by way of text.
