“This is just another way to help us reach the community,” Delhi Township Police Chief Jim Howarth said.

Developed by Citizen Observer’s tip411 program, the DTPD tip411Mobile app puts a useful crime-fighting tool into the hands of residents of all ages. The app is available for download for free via the Google Play Store, iTunes App Store or through the police department’s website, Search “DTPD” in the app stores to locate it.

“Finding new ways to connect with our residents and increase our crime fighting efforts is a constant priority for my department,” Howarth said.

“After partnering with tip411 for more than five years, this upgrade to our technological capabilities with tip411Mobile will greatly benefit our department’s ability to share information with residents and receive tips to improve public safety.”
