Andrews Police Department introduces new anonymous tips app

The Andrews Police Department is partnering with tip411 in order to implement a new anonymous tips app for smart devices.

ANDREWS, Texas — The Andrews Police Department has introduced its partnership with tip411 in order to implement a new anonymous tips and alerts app for smart devices.

The app, which will be available on the App Store and Google Play Store, will remove all identifying information before the police see the tips, with no way of identifying the sender.

Residents in Andrews without a smartphone will be able to send an anonymous text tip through their phone by texting the keyword APDTIP and their message/tip to 847411 (tip411). 

The Andrews Police Department does ask that if there is an emergency that needs to be reported to still call dispatch, but the tip app will be for those who are afraid to call the police.
