The Rexburg, ID Police Department has launched the Rexburg PD mobile app, developed by tip411, that allows the public to anonymously report suspicious activity or details regarding crimes.

“We are pleased, as a department, to advance our technological abilities for our city. Community involvement in stopping, identifying and preventing criminal activity is integral and we trust that this service will help Rexburg continue its leadership in our state as the safest city in Idaho,” the department says on its website.

Residents can also send anonymous text tips via their cell phone by texting keyword REXBURGPD and their message/tip to 847411 (tip411).

The system, developed by tip411, is completely anonymous as the technology removes all identifying information before officers see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender.

The Rexburg PD mobile app is available for download for free via the Google Play Store or iTunes App Store.
