Fairfax County Crime Solvers Mobile App
Fairfax County Crime Solvers is using tip411, an Internet based tool from Citizen Observer that enables the public to text message an anonymous tip to police and lets teh officers respond back creating an anonymous two-way conversation.
Used by over 1,200 communities throughout the U.S., tip411 enables anyone with a cell phone to text anonymous tips to authorized personnel within an agency. These tips are received in real-time and can be responded to in seconds via an interface that allows for secure web and text-based conversations. The tip411 system is 100% anonymous, as its technology removes all identifying information before police see it and there is no way to identify the sender.
