HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -
Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones announced Monday the availability of TipSoft, a service for citizens to anonymously submit crime-related tips through the web, a text message or from any Android or iPhone mobile device with the TipSubmit mobile app.
The sheriff's office said the system is successful because it uses technology that is familiar to citizens which allows them to carry on an anonymous two-way conversation with the agency without requiring them to speak directly to an investigator.
To date, other agencies using the TipSoft system across the country have received more than 2 million tips, resulting in 145,000 arrests.
In addition to encouraging the public to submit crime-related information using web forms, mobile apps and texting, TipSoft supports users' ability to submit videos or photographs using the mobile app. All of this is accomplished while completely shielding the identity of the tipster.
The sheriff's office said citizens are encouraged to report information about any non-urgent illegal activity, such as unsolved cases, vandalism, theft, food stamp fraud, the sale and distribution of drugs or information about crimes that are being planned in the community or in schools.
Tips can be submitted by visiting www.butlersheriff.org, or by texting the keyword "COPS" and their tip to 274637 (CRIMES).
