It doesn’t matter if its late night, early morning or during business hours — violent crime is invading Minneapolis neighborhoods at an alarming rate.
“We need the community’s help to solve these serious crimes that are taking place,” said Minneapolis Police Cmdr. Scott Gerlicher.
Minneapolis police are reminding people how they can help, anonymously, by using their cellphone as a crime-fighting tool.
If you have information about a crime, you can either text 847411 or download MPD Tip on your smartphone to leave an anonymous tip for police.
“They all get triaged here, so we look at every single tip that comes in and we decide who would be best to handle the follow up on this,” Lt. Jeff Rugel said.
He says the system is set up so officers have no idea who is calling.
