The Stickney Police Department is increasing its crime-fighting arsenal with a new app to help residents connect with the department to find information, view alerts, and submit anonymous tips from their smartphone.
Developed by tip411, the Stickney PD app puts a powerful new crime-fighting tool into the hands of community members of all ages. The Stickney PD app is available for download for free via the Google Play Store, iTunes App Store or on our website at www.villageofstickney.com/police.
“We’re dedicated to working with our community to help prevent crime,” said Stickney Police Chief James Sassetti. “I believe our new Stickney PD app from tip411 will help us better interact with residents of all ages to keep Stickney safe.”
The new Stickney PD app enables the public to share an anonymous tip with police and lets officers respond back to create an anonymous two-way conversation.
“We’ve listened to feedback from partners like Stickney Police and have built a more advanced and innovative product to help departments better engage their communities,” said tip411 President Terry Halsch. “
The Stickney PD app, powered by tip411, will greatly improve the public’s access to agency alerts, social media channels, important information, and more to help fight crime.” The Stickney PD app and tip411 anonymous text a tip system are 100% anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before police see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender.
Those without a smartphone can share information with police by sending an anonymous text tip via their cell phone to police by texting keyword STICKNEY and their message/tip to 847411 (tip411). Anonymous web tips can also be submitted via the department’s website at www.villageofstickney.com/police.
