Orange County CrimeStoppers- Submit anonymous tips in order to stop illegal activity in your area
Santa Ana- 11/18/11 – for the first time, mobile phone users across Orange County now have the ability to provide anonymous crime fighting tips through the power of anonymous test messaging and WebTips. Santa Ana Police Department and CrimeReports, the industry leader in law enforcement tip management software and web application, have joined together to provide this service which allows citizens to send anonymous tips by sending a text message from a mobile phone or online.
Using TipSoft from CrimeReports, information may be anonymously received and securely replied to with complete confidence. The service was built specifically to allow text messaging informants to remain anonymous by encrypting the text messages and routing them through several secure servers, protecting the personal details of the informant.
TipSoft SMS also allows police to respond by text message to the originating cell phone without ever knowing the identity of the individual who left the tip. The user’s information is always given an alias and a unique ID before being sent. This secure application allows the tipster and the investigator to have two-way dialog while always keeping the user’s identity completely anonymous,
Santa Ana Police Department encourages everyone to report information about any non-urgent illegal activity, such as unsolved cases, vandalism, theft, the sale and distribution of drugs or information about crimes that are being planned in the community or schools.
