How our crime tips work
We use a 3rd party to handle the tip submissions. This lets you send things anonymously and securely. The data is secured through standard SSL from the app and web and since we don’t directly control either of them (logs, servers, etc) we do not receive your IP address or related information. However you can share your information with us, which is good for us if we have follow up questions or you want us to know who is sending in the information. It is up to you what to share with us.
It does help us if you can include as much information as possible. The form is really quick and simple to use which is easy for you but please include details that help us understand exactly what we should know. The who, what, when, where, and why of the issue.
