Cedar Park, TX Police have unveiled a new way to not only save lives, but give citizens the chance to help via tip411.
Cedar Park Police Chief Sean Mannix announced the new Tip411 program April 30.
“For those in the community [who] have ever wanted to let us know about … a crime that has occurred that they might have information on, but they might have been hesitant to call us, well, there’s an app for that,” Mannix said.
Residents in emergency situations must call 911. But anyone who has a nonemergency tip about a crime or suspicious activity can text 847411 with the keyword “CPPD,” he said.
