The Coeur d’Alene Police Department announces CDAPDTIP, a new method of submitting anonymous tips through a web browser, an Apple or Android app, or via text message.

When you submit a tip, it is sent to a third-party service (tip411) which acts as a privacy buffer to screen out all of your personal information in order to protect your identity and contact information.

To download the Apple or Android apps, or to access the tip web browser, please go to and click on Police Tips for the links.

You can also send a tip via text to 847411, and include the keyword CDAPDTIP, along with your message.

CDAPDTIP is provided to the public as a non-emergency service and is not monitored 24 hours a day. If there is an emergency, you will need to dial 9-1-1. If your situation is not an emergency, but still requires assistance by an officer, you may call 208-769-2320.
