New Castle Police Department Launches Anonymous Text Program

tip411

The New Castle Police Department has launched tip411, an internet based tool that enables the public to text message an anonymous tip to police, and lets the police respond back creating a two way anonymous “chat”. The program is reserved exclusively for Public Safety purposes and is powered by Minnesota-based Citizen Observer.

Anyone with a cell phone can send an anonymous tip to the New Castle Police by texting the word NEWCPD followed by the tip information to 847411 (tip411). Anonymous web tips can also be submitted online at www.ncpd.info/tip

Its 100% anonymous. Tip411 technology removes all identifying information before the Police Department see’s it so there’s no way to identify the sender.

Funding for the program came from the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.

The program is not monitored 24/7. Emergencies and in-progress calls should still be reported by calling 911 or the New Castle Police Department’s non-emergency number: 914-238-4422.
