You can now submit anonymous tips via text or e-mail to the Austin Police Department. Anyone with a cell phone may send an anonymous tip to Austin Police Department by texting austinpd and their message/tip to 847411 (tip411). Anonymous web tips can also be submitted right from the Police Department’s tab or click here for Submit a Tip and Sign Up For Alerts.
We believe the public is our greatest law enforcement resource,” said Chief Brian Krueger of the Austin Police Department, “tip411 allows a safe and secure way for our residents to share important information with police without the fear of retribution.”
The tip411 system is 100% anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before police see it and there is no way to identify the sender.
