Tips from the Public Help St. Pete Police Identify Suspect

Tips from the public have led police to identify the woman they say followed and beat up a 69-year-old woman at her home as 34-year-old Leslie Broadfoot.

Police say that surveillance video inside a Marathon gas station on 10th Avenue N shows Broadfoot shortly before the beat-down. It was Sept. 9 and people were rushing around Tampa Bay to get last-minute supplies and fill their tanks before Hurricane Irma.

Police said Broadfoot asked the 69-year-old to buy her fuel in exchange for helping unload her car with hurricane supplies from Lowes.

Broadfoot and another person followed the woman to her home.

Then instead of offering the promised help, police say Broadfoot hit the other woman repeatedly and stole her purse.

Surveillance video from the 69-year-old woman’s house shows a white Jeep or SUV leaving the property after the robbery.

Broadfoot has a lengthy criminal history including drug and theft convictions, court records show.

Police are asking for help finding Broadfoot. People with any information can call 727-893-7780 or text the keyword “SPPD” and an anonymous tip to 847-411 (Tip-411.)

New app encourages people to anonymously report crime

For Hamden Police, it is another step in helping to bridge the gap between police officers and the communities they protect. A new smartphone app called tip411 lets smartphone users submit crime tips anonymously.

“Often I’ll be in meetings and hear people say like I did yesterday, well, I didn’t want to bother the police. I heard from somebody else well, I want to be anonymous and I didn’t want to get involved so to speak,” said Hamden Chief of Police Thomas Wydra.

 Wydra said the goal of the department is to connect with everyone in the town but realizes certain groups of people are hesitant to engage. Officers believe the app will encourage people to alert them of suspicious activity.

“We wanna reach people who ordinarily might not be willing to engage with us for a variety of reasons. That includes kids, people whose immigration status may be in jeopardy or some other process they don’t want to engage the local police. This is another way for them to reach us,” said Wydra.

New ‘tip411’ app to let the public help Hamden police anonymously

A new smartphone app will let town residents be part of the police force, allowing allow anyone who downloads it to send anonymous tips and get alerts about crime in the community.

The Legislative Council this week approved funds for the police department to purchase the app.

“We know people are scared or intimidated,” Police Chief Thomas Wydra said. “This is the perfect tool to overcome that fear. It’s a way to encourage people to engage with us.”

The app, called tip411, lets a user submit crime tips anonymously, which alleviates a fear some have of getting involved with police. A user also can include photos or video.

Another feature allows the department to send out alerts to the community about crimes in the area. The alerts can be categorized by type of crime and can be directed at particular communities and neighborhoods. Through the app, a person with information can also add a tip to a specific alert.

“We want to connect with everybody, but certain groups are timid,” Wydra said. He said he is thinking specifically about schoolchildren and people with questionable immigration status who may have a heightened fear of interacting with police. “The app reaches them,” he said.
