City leaders are working together to prevent crime through a campaign called TIP411.

The hope is that it will keep people safe, as well as help police, through texting.

“The campaign seeks to empower our community residents to become more aware and responsive to crime-related issues while being able to report them anonymously,” Mayor Kim Bracey said.

A reminder is posted on billboards and on the sides of RabbitTransit buses. All you have to do is text your tip to 847411.

“This is an opportunity for the city residents to have a bit of an attitude and typically that’s a bad thing, but I think the attitude we need to have is, ‘not on my street, not in my neighborhood, and not in my town’,” RabbitTransit executive director Richard Farr said.
