Bismarck Police to Launch New Anonymous Text Tip System

News

Bismarck Police Department is making some big changes for the new year. Crime Stoppers is out, and a new, anonymous text tip system will take its place.

The new system, Tip411 will be used starting January 1st.

Tip411 allows users to text the police department, and officers can actually respond. So you can have a back and forth conversation, anonymously, to explain what you’ve witnessed. 

You can even attach photos or video to your tip.

Bismarck Police Department Officer Lynn Wanner adds, “Because we’re making it a lot easier for people to use, especially on the go; I mean if they’re out somewhere and they see something it’s much easier to text in a tip while it’s going on, rather than having to make a phone call or wait to get back and get on a website and use it. So, we’re hoping this really increases the amount of tips that come in that are useful to us.”

The text exchange works on the app, or you can text directly to the Tip411 number: 847-411. Start your message with keyword BISPD.

Search Bismarck PD in the App Store or the Google Play Store. It’s available today.
