The Clovis Police Department is increasing its crime-fighting arsenal with a new app to help local residents connect with the department to find information, view alerts, and submit anonymous tips, all from their smartphone.
Developed by tip411, the Clovis PD app puts a powerful new crime-fighting tool into the hands of community members of all ages. The app is available for download for free via the Google Play Store, iTunes App Store, or by visiting the Clovis Police Department website at http://police.cityofclovis.org.
“The Clovis Police Department strives to make the City of Clovis a safer place to live, work, and play in by working in partnership with our community,” said Clovis Police Chief Douglas Ford. “We believe our new Clovis PD app from tip411 will help us better connect and engage with our residents to help fight crime.”
“We’ve listened to feedback from communities like Clovis and have built a more advanced and innovative product to help departments better engage their residents,” said tip411 President Terry Halsch.
The Clovis PD app and tip411 anonymous text a tip system are 100% anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before police see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender.
Residents in Clovis without a smartphone can send an anonymous text tip via their cell phone to police by texting keyword CLOVISPD and their message/tip to 847411. Anonymous web tips can also be submitted through the department’s website at http://police.cityofclovis.org.
