• Text-a-Tip (anonymously report bullying, violence, crime and more)

    Students can now use their mobile phones to provide anonymous tips to school safety administrators. The service, called Text-A-Tip, allows students to send anonymous tips online, via smartphone, or by sending a text message to “CRIMES” (274637) with the keyword DPSTIP from any mobile phone.

    Text-A-Tip allows school authorities and students to have a two-way dialog that is completely secure and anonymous. Students should use Text-A-Tip to report any safety-related information, including bullying, suicide prevention, sexting, drug use or information about crimes that are being planned in the community or in schools.

    Currently used by over 800 schools and law enforcement agencies throughout the country, Text-A-Tip, which is provided by CrimeReports, allows text message providers to remain anonymous by encrypting the text messages, assigning them a unique ID, and routing them through secure servers, protecting the personal details of the information provider.
