Crime Stoppers Announces the Launch of the TipSubmit™ Now available for iPhone™ and Android™ applications

Los Angeles:  CrimeReports, creator of the National Crime Map, today announced the launch of the TipSubmit™ Mobile application for Android™ and iPhone™.  This application is the first mobile application that allows the public anonymously submit tips to law enforcement agencies including LAPD to help solve and prevent crime.

Users of this application may now submit secure and anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers programs, law enforcement agencies or school safety officers and administrators.

The new mobile application augments the existing TipSoft tools that allow the public to submit anonymous tips via phone, Web and Short Message Service (SMS) Text-a-tip.  The application offers more powerful options than SMS Text-a-Tip, because it has the ability to use Global Positioning System (GPS) to auto-locate the nearest agency or to select an agency manually.

Community members now can attach images and video clips to tips.  The application also makes it possible to establish an anonymous, ongoing, two-way dialogue and real-time chat with the receiving agency.

There is no cost to the public to use this application.  To learn more or download the TipSoft application, visit Tipsoft.com or visit the Android™ Market or iTunes™ App Store.

Community members can also continuously contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477) to report crimes anonymously. Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.

For more information, contact LAPD Crime Stoppers coordinator at 213-484-6710 or LAPD Media Relations Section at 213-486-5910.
