The Baldwin Borough, PA Police Department recently announced a partnership with tip411, who helped develop the Baldwin Borough PD mobile app. The app allows residents to send anonymous tips directly to police officers and allows the agency to send important alerts to residents who subscribe, such as active crime scenes and weather/ traffic related incidents.

Raquelle Reinheime, who owns Xtend Studio in Baldwin, likes the idea of tip411.

“If I’m driving, I might witness someone swerving down the road and that kind of scares me a little bit,” said Reinheimer. “It could be a drunk driver. It could not be. It could be someone falling asleep at the wheel. Like I said I get nervous sometimes to call the police, but like I said if I could send a quick text, not while driving, to let them know hey I think someone ahead of me might need assistance before they cause an accident. I think that could definitely help.”

Citizens can share information with Baldwin Borough PD by by texting the keyword BALDWIN and sending their message/tip to 847411. The Baldwin Borough PD mobile app is available for free via the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

The Mount Lebanon, PA Police Department began using the tip411 service several years ago. The agency says it’s been very successful. Point Park University launched its tip411 service in 2017.
