Report Eagle County crimes via text messages

EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – Phone users across Eagle County now have the ability to provide anonymous crime fighting tips via anonymous text messaging and online web tips.

Eagle County Crime Stoppers, the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office and Anderson Software have joined together to provide this service which allows citizens to send anonymous tips via text messages and the Internet.

TipSoft SMS allows law enforcement to respond by test message to the originating cell phone without ever knowing the identity of the individual who left the tip. The user’s information is always given an alias and a unique identity before being sent. This secure application allows the tipster and the investigator to have two-way dialog while always keeping the user’s identity completely anonymous.

All messages should begin with the keyword “STOPCRIME,” followed by a space and then the tip. Messages should be sent to CRIMES, or 274637.
