The Leander Police Department announced their new app that allows the community to anonymously share any public safety concerns directly to the police.

The app created by tip411 will send a secure message from your smart phone to LPD about any suspicious or criminal activity.

In a press release officers said they hope this will become a powerful tool for the community to fight-crime.

“The Leander Police Department understands that fighting crime takes a working partnership with the community. We cannot be everywhere at every moment so we rely on the members of the community to be our eyes and ears,” said Police Chief Greg Minton. “We know that the members of our community are our greatest resource.”
