The Groesbeck Police Department partnered up with Tip411 to develop an app.
According to Groesbeck police, the Groesbeck PD app will allow people to receive alerts, respond to requests for case assistance, view crime maps and submit anonymous tips directly to the police department.
With the app, residents can also submit anonymous tips by texting the keyword GPD followed by your tip to 847411.
As well as the app, Groesbeck police have also added a “Submit A Tip” button to their Facebook page to access the system from there.
This system allows residents to report a tip without the fear of exposure or retaliation, according to Groesbeck police.
The app is available in the Google Play Store and the App Store.
