he Phillipsburg Police Department is interested in receiving as much information as possible from citizens. In an effort to encourage individuals to contact the police department, the Phillipsburg Police Department offers Tip411. Tip411 is a texting and web based notification system which allows the public to text a completely anonymous tip to police and allows the police to respond back creating a two-way anonymous chat.
Tip411 is reserved exclusively for public safety and is part of a program by Citizen Observer that operates in 27 states.
To participate, text TIPPPD and the tip to 847411 (Standard rates apply). The tipster’s identity is encrypted and given a code number before any information is sent to police. The tipster can also use the code number to text back and forth with police and maintain anonymity.
Individuals who wish to provide tips to the Police Department by phone can still do so at 908-454-1121. This program does not replace 911 which should still be used for any emergency situation that requires immediate assistance from the police, Fire Department or ambulance.
It’s easy to participate and completely anonymous. Simply text TIPPPD and then the tip to 847411.
