The Jordan Police Department has launched new technology allowing the public to share important public safety information anonymously with police by sending them a secure message about crimes or suspicious activity in Jordan via a free smartphone app, text messaging, and/or an online web page form.

Developed by tip411, the Jordan Tips app puts a powerful new crime-fighting tool into the hands of community members of all ages. The app can be downloaded for free via the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store by searching Jordan Tips, or by visiting the Jordan Police Department’s Facebook page – Jordan (MN) Police Department and clicking on Submit A Tip.

“We believe the public is our greatest law enforcement resource and we are hoping that by providing a truly 100 percent anonymous pathway for our citizens to provide information to us that more citizens will come forward with important information when otherwise maybe they wouldn’t have,” Jordan Police Chief Brett Empey said. “The technology from tip411 removes all identifying information before police see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender. Our new Jordan Tips app, along with the tip411 anonymous text a tip system, will help our residents play a more active role in keeping our City safe.”
