New iPhone App to Submit Anonymous Tips to Crime Stoppers

February 28th, 2011

Got a tip that will help solve a crime? There’s an app for that!

Southern Alberta Crime Stoppers, in partnership with CrimeReport.com, is pleased to announce TipSubmit Mobile, the first free, anonymous and fully featured iPhone application that allows the public to submit tips to help solve and prevent crimes.

“We recognize the way people communicate continues to evolve and we’re excited to offer another way for individuals to use the latest technology to anonymously provide information that will help the police solve crimes,” said Doug Campbell, spokesman for Southern Alberta Crime Stoppers.

Using the TipSubmit app, iPhone users can send non-emergency tips to Crime Stoppers, law enforcement agencies and schools. Message length is unlimited and tipsters can also upload photos and video and establish an anonymous, two-way conversation with the receiving agency.

TipSubmit Mobile allows users to easily auto-locate the nearest agency they can send their tips to or select one manually. Once a tip has been received it will be assigned a unique reference code.

The new application augments existing TipSoft tools that allow the public to submit anonymous tips online, via phone and using SMS Text-a-Tip.

TipSubmit Mobile is currently available for iPhone but versions for Blackberry and Android devices are expected to be released in the coming months.

Download TipSubmit Mobile here visit the Apple App store and search TipSoft or TipSubmit.

Southern Alberta Crime Stoppers will pay up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest. We want your information, not your name.
