Winchester Police Tip Line
The Winchester Police Department and the Winchester Coalition for a Safer Community is launching 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”.
Reserved exclusively for Public Safety purposes and powered by CitizenObserver, a St. Paul MN company, tip411 puts a powerful new crime fighting tool into the hands of our community for all ages and demographics. tip411 is a national program that benefits over 1000 communities around the county.
Anyone with a cell phone can now send an anonymous tip to Winchester Police by texting the word Winchester and the tip information to 847411 (tip411).
Anonymous web tips can also be submitted right from the Police Department’s website at www.winchesterpd.org (look under CONTACT) or from the direct link at http://www.citizenobserver.com/cov6/app/webTipForm.html?id=10750
Its 100% anonymous. CitizenObserver’s technology removes all identifying information before the Winchester Police Department see’s it so there’s no way to identify the sender.
The tip line is not intended for emergencies. If you want to notify police of an emergency, dial 911.
CitizenObserver, a St. Paul, MN company founded in 2000, provides web based alerting tools to law enforcement, education, and public safety agencies in over 40 states.
