The Asheville Police Department (APD) is putting a new crime-fighting tool into the hands of community members. This new tool, TIP2APD, enables the public to share anonymous tips with police officers and lets officers respond back to create an anonymous two-way conversation. 

Watch the video below they created as a great way to help promote their system and teach residents how to use it. 

More information about their tip411 anonymous tip system is available from Asheville PD on their website here.
