MILLARD COUNTY SHERIFF LAUNCHES ANONYMOUS TIPPING TOOL TO FIGHT CRIME
Monday, 15 August 2011 13:30

Citizens can send anonymous text and web tips to the Millard County Sheriff’s Office

The Millard County Sheriff’s Office has announced a new service to allow members of the public to provide anonymous tips to law enforcement. The service, called TipSoft, was recently announced by Attorney General Mark Shurtleff as a statewide initiative involving more than 50 law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Utah. Starting today, citizens can submit anonymous tips to the Millard County Sheriff’s Office through the Web, smartphone app, or by sending a text message to “CRIMES” (274637) with the keyword MCSOTIP.

“The widespread use of text messaging makes it easy for the public to help law enforcement agencies fight crime,” said Sheriff Robert Dekker. “And with TipSoft, they can know that it’s safe for them to do the right thing without ever disclosing their identity.”

TipSoft, which is made by Draper-based CrimeReports, allows agencies and members of the public to exchange messages back and forth through a completely secure and anonymous channel.

Sheriff Dekker said, “The public often has information that can help prevent or solve a crime. This tool gives them a safe way to share that information. We still urge citizens to come forward and talk to us but for those that have safety concerns, this will give them a way to contact us, allow us to have communication with them and they still stay anonymous.”

Since launching its mobile capabilities in 2009, TipSoft has received more than 2 million tips, 145,000 arrests have been made, 55,000 fugitives caught, more than $5.3 billion recovered in drugs and property, 11,000 vehicles recovered, and 22,000 weapons recovered.

Citizens are encouraged to use TipSoft to report information about any non-urgent illegal activity, such as unsolved crimes, vandalism, theft, the sale and distribution of drugs or information about crimes that are being planned in the community or in schools.
