Ocala Police Department launches the National tip411

The Ocala Police Department launches the National tip411 anonymous text program.

The Ocala Police Department adds a new dimension to eyes and ears on the street to help create a safer community. The program is an internet based tool that enables the public to text message an anonymous tip to police, and lets police respond back creating an anonymous two way chat.

This is a new idea in law enforcement and is powered by CitizenObserver, a St. Paul, Minnesota Company, tip411 puts a powerful new crime fighting tool into the hands of our community.

We are proud to bring this national program to Ocala. This new capability will help our citizens play an active role in keeping neighborhoods safer and can save our Agency time and resources.

Anyone with a cell phone can now send an anonymous tip to the Ocala Police Department by texting the word “ ocalapd “ and the tip information to 847411 (tip411)

Anonymous Web tips can also be submitted right from the Police Departments website at www.ocalapd.com

It’s 100 % anonymous. CitizenObserver’s technology removes all identifying information before the Police Department sees it, so there is no way to identify the sender.

According to Chief Greg Graham, this capability is a new paradigm for creating safer communities-especially in reaching out to a younger age demographic.

Citizens no longer have to feel afraid to come forward, you can now pass along information without the fear of retribution.
