The Elyria, OH Police Department is increasing its crime-fighting arsenal with the TipElyria mobile app, developer by tip411, to help residents connect with the department to find information, view alerts and submit anonymous tips from their smartphone.

“The city of Elyria Police Department’s mission is to provide professional police services for the city in partnership with the community,” said Elyria PD Chief Bill Pelko. “In Elyria, we believe we can do more by working together, and our new tip411 system will help make it easier for our community to partner with us to make Elyria a safer place to live, work and visit.”

The app enables the public to share an anonymous tip with police and lets officers respond to create an anonymous two-way conversation. The TipElyria app is available for download for free via the Google Play Store and the iPhone App Store.

Citizens can also submit a tip to the Elyria PD by texting the keyword TIPELYRIA and sending their message/tip to 847411.
