The Peoria Police Department utilizes CrimeReports and TipSoft SMS (short message service) to receive 100% anonymous crime-related tips. No one will ever know the identity of the tipster. The technology routes messages through a server that encrypts the source of the tip, before the tip reaches the police. The technology also allows investigators to securely reply back without compromising the tipster's identity.
There are a few options to submit a tip:
- BY TEXT: Type PPD, then your message, and send to 274-637 (CRI-MES).
- Tip Phone Line: 623-773-7045
- E-mail Tips: PDTips@peoriaaz.gov (Note: E-mail is not anonymous)
- ONLINE FORM: Click here to use the online form
Tipsters can follow-up on previously submitted tips by using the encrypted code number provided at the time of tip submission. Click here to check on a tip previously submitted.
