What is “TEXT TIP LINE”
Text Tiplines offer the only completely anonymous reporting system. Using email and text formats, community members are able to anonymously submit tips to law enforcement who can then respond to the issues. The system does not record or show the phone number, so all text messages are anonymous.
How to get started:
- Contact your local law enforcement agency (Sheriff’s Office or Police Department) and ask if they would support the implementation of a texting tipline. Some communities have even worked with Game and Fish or Fire Departments to implement texting tiplines. Texting tiplines can also be administered by a school or School Resource Officer.
- Implement a tipline. There are companies that can work with you to implement a tipline. They can train your staff, provide you with a phone and software, and can even help you promote your tipline number.
- Promote the tipline. Create posters, flyers, billboards, etc. Make sure the community knows it is available and how to use it.
- Collect data. Find out how many tips are coming in, what kind of tips are coming in, and the result of the tips.
- Report the success of the tipline to the community. Create buy-in and sustainability
