The Peoria, IL Police Department mobile app has launched, allowing residents to connect with the department to find information, view alerts and submit anonymous tips from their smartphone.

The Peoria PD app, developed by tip411, enables the public to share an anonymous tip with police and lets officers respond back to create an anonymous two-way conversation.

“The Peoria Police Department is absolutely dedicated to making our city safer and improving the quality of life on every street, every block, and every neighborhood,” said Police Chief Eric P. Echevarria.

“But we cannot do it alone, we need our community to partner with us, and we believe our new tip411 system will help make it easier for residents to contact us and share information,” the chief said.

The Peoria PD app and tip411 anonymous text a tip system are 100% anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before police see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender.
