On January 6, 2021, Delhi Township Police used the community alerting feature of their tip411 system to reach out to members of their community directly seeking information to help identify a pair of theft suspects.
Thanks to tipsters providing information back to the department using the anonymous tip portion of their tip411 system, police were able to identify both individuals and receive signed warrants for them within a week.
Delhi Police then sent another alert through their tip411 system back to the community to thank them and let them know that the tips had led to the identifications.
