Westchester County, New York law enforcement recently launched the anonymous tip411 program that will allow anyone with a smartphone, tablet, standard cell phone or computer to share a tip with their local police department.
The Yonkers Police Department has been successfully using the system for the last four years and now, with the help of the Westchester County District Attorney, 37 departments in the county will be participating in the DA’s tip411 program.
“This program puts a powerful new crime fighting tool into the hands of our community. Law enforcement must continue to be forward thinking, and embracing the way many people communicate today, adds to the way that everyone, especially the younger age demographic, can contact police. The system allows citizens to report on a crime without having to say a word, providing an unprecedented anywhere, anytime, silent and anonymous approach to crime reporting,” said District Attorney Janet DiFiore.
