Text a Tip
How does it work?
Callers can text tip information via their cell or they can email tips. This is accomplished with complete anonymity. Virginia law protects the anonymity of tip providers. This information is exempt from a search warrant and subpoena. The system that disseminates this information to the agency is located in Canada. Canada law does not allow the release of “tipster” information. This gives an extra layer of protection.
What are the advantages?
- No delay in receiving information
- Provides a two-way text dialogue between the sender and police through a secure connection
- The Text-A-Tip program does not provide the police with your cell phone number
