BPD Re-introduces Tip411 System

The Borger Police Department re-introduces Tip411 Public Safety Alert System. Safety initiative allows police and public to communicate via email and text

 

The Borger Police Department wants to remind the public about the tip411 alert system from CitizenObserver, an interactive way to keep the community connected and informed through email, text message, and online public safety alerts.  Tip411 also allows the public to report crimes and other suspicious activities directly to police by sending anonymous text messages from their cell phone.

“We believe an informed community is a safer community,” said Chief Bruce Roberts. “The tip411 system has allows our department to engage with the public and share information that will help make Borger a safer place.”

Members of the community can register to receive alerts from The Borger Police Department via email and/or text message to their cell phone by opting to receive neighborhood-specific or citywide alerts about public safety issues in their area.  A link will also be available on our Facebook page. Community members are encouraged to sign up online by visiting www.citizenobserver.com

The public can also share information on crimes and other suspicious activity by sending an anonymous web or text tip to police.  While not a replacement for dialing 9-1-1 in an emergency, those wishing to share information anonymously with police can simply text BORGER and their message to 847411 (tip411).  The system does not guarantee immediate response, but its intent is to provide information to be shared and investigated.

“This system has been successful in communities across the U.S.,” said Terry Halsch, President of tip411.  “Departments have been helped tremendously by members of the public who have sent anonymous text messages to police with important information that often leads to arrests.”

Increased enrollment and involvement greatly enhances the effectiveness of both the alert and tip portion of the program and citizens are encouraged to signup and/or utilize the system. Those with questions, or who need help signing up for alerts, are asked to call the Borger Police Department at (806) 273-0930.
