The Riley County Police Department and the Manhattan Riley County Crime Stoppers are taking crime tips submission to the next level and are encouraging members of the public with smart phones or tablets to download and use a free mobile phone/tablet app to assist local authorities in stopping and deterring crime in the Riley County area. This app, “TipSubmit,” can be found in the iTunes App Store and the Android Market.

“TipSubmit Mobile is new mobile tip submission application that offers many great new features and benefits vs. any existing tip submission processes. Tipsters get the convenience of submitting tips from their mobile device with the immediacy of SMS text tipping but without having to rely on the SMS text tip platform and limitations. Images may now be included, unlimited length messages, fully anonymous two-way dialogue and even virtual chat mode when both parties are online. There is a definite place for SMS text tips in this world but our all new TipSubmit Mobile application does indeed take things to the next level for effectiveness and efficiency. “–Tipsoft Website.

In a world of ever increasing use of smart phone technology, this app will give community members the ability to more easily converse with law enforcement in a truly anonymous way, while still maintaining the ability to qualify for a cash reward of up to $1,000.00.
