Peachtree City Police Launches Anonymous Tip Service As Proactive Crime Tool
Can Submit Anonymous Crime Tips Via Web, Texting, or Mobile TDevice
The Peachtree City Police Department announced today the
availability of TipSoft,
a service for citizens to anonymously
submit crime-related tips through the Web, a text message, or from any Android
or iPhone mobile device with the TipSubmit mobile app.
The use of TipSoft is part of the agency’s proactive efforts to prevent,
reduce, and solve crime.
TipSoft is successful
because it uses technology that is familiar to citizens, which allows them to
carry on an anonymous two-way conversation with the agency without requiring
them to speak directly to an officer. TipSoft is proven to help stop and solve
crimes. To date, the TipSoft system, used across the country, has received more
than two million tips, resulting in
145,000 arrests, 55,000 fugitives caught, and more than $5.3 billion recovered
in drugs and property - including 11,000 vehicles and 22,000 weapons.
Citizens are encouraged to use TipSoft to report
information about any non-urgent illegal activity, such as unsolved cases,
vandalism, theft, the sale and distribution of drugs or information about crimes
that are being planned in the community or in schools.
