iPhone App Crime Tips

For the first time, iPhone® and Android™ phone users can provide anonymous crime fighting tips, including smart phone photographs and video, to the Huntsville Area Crimestoppers. The service, called TipSoft, allows citizens to send anonymous tips online using a custom "App" from a mobile phone.

The widespread use of smart phones makes it easy for the public to help law enforcement agencies fight crime. And with the TipSoft apps, they can know that it’s safe for them to do the right thing without ever disclosing their identity.

TipSoft allows agencies and members of the public to have a two-way dialog that is completely secure and anonymous. The service specifically allows smart phone users to remain anonymous by encrypting the messages, assigning them a unique alias and ID, and routing them through secure servers, protecting the personal details of the information provider.
              • Submit images and video
              • Unlimited messaging length
              • Fully anonymous two-way dialogue including virtual chat mode when both parties are online
              • Auto-locate the nearest agency
              • Available in the Apple App Store and Android Market

Tipsters now have the option of texting tips through their cell phone. The process is completely secure and anonymous and is a very effective and efficient means of safely communicating with us in today's world.
