The Crestwood Police Department is increasing its crime-fighting arsenal with a new app to help the community connect with the department to find information, view alerts, and submit anonymous tips from their smartphone. Developed by tip411, the Crestwood MO PD app puts this tool into the hands of community members of all ages.
"To accomplish our mission of public service, we believe our new tip411 system will help make it easier for residents to contact us and share information," Chief Jonathan Williams said.
The app allows the community to receive important crime and public safety alerts straight from the police department. The alert will appear as a notification on your phone, just like a text message or e-mail.
The app also allows community members to send crime tips direct to the police department. The tip system is 100% anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before the police see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender. Those without a smartphone can share information with the department by sending an anonymous text tip as well, via their cell phone to the Crestwood Police Department by texting the keyword CRESTWOODTIP and their message/tip to 847411 (tip411). If you are unable to download the app for your smart phone for any reason, you are still able to submit a tip below.
