minot nd police departmentMinot Police Department (60 sworn) has partnered up with tip411 so that residents can anonymously provide tips directly to police. 

This partnership comes after the success of the tip411 tool utilized by the North Dakota Sheriffs and Deputies Association since 2020.

Minot Police Chief John Klug told the Minot City Council earlier this month that the time now is right for his department to directly receive tips.

“The biggest part for law enforcement is if we have seven officers out, they can only be in seven places. But if we have 50 people in the community that are willing to text a tip to us about a crime happening, that’s 50 more sets of eyes,” he said. “It just gives us one more way to connect with people in an anonymous way to report crime to us.”

The public can submit anonymous tips to the Minot PD by texting “MINOTPD” and the tip information to 847411. The public can also use the MINOTPD Tip mobile app, powered by tip411, to view community alerts and submit anonymous tips. The MINOTPD Tip app can be downloaded for free at the iTunes and Google Play App Store.
