Tip411 Crime Tips
You can help fight crime in the Leander community. Members of the public can share important crime information anonymously with the police department by sending a secure message about crimes or suspicious activity in their neighborhood.
The way to do this is by using the LPDTIP App, which puts a powerful new crime-fighting tool into the hands of community members. The free app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or from the iTunes App Store.
If you can't or don't want to download the free app, anyone with a cell phone may send an anonymous tip to the Leander Police Department by texting 847411. Start the message with our unique keyword LPDTIP and then enter your tip message. The keyword is important, as it lets the Tip411 software know where you want the tip to go. The LPDTIP App and the tip411 anonymous text-a-tip system enables the public to share anonymous tips with police and allow the officers to respond back creating an anonymous two-way conversation.
We keep repeating it, because it's true. The LPDTIP App and the tip411 text a tip system are 100% anonymous, as the tip411 technology removes all identifying information before the police department sees the tip and there is no way to identify the sender. Be sure to save/record your tip ID. You can use the ID to login to view feedback about your tip from the agency/group. Just enter the ID on the tip submit page and any feedback about your tip from the group will display. You can then submit additional information to the group using the tip form.
Along with the new LPDTIP App and the tip411 text a tip system, the Leander Police Department is also offering the tip411 Alert System from CitizenObserver, an interactive way to keep the community connected and informed through email, text messages, and online public safety alerts. Using the tip411 Alert System, members of the community can register to receive alerts from the Leander Police Department via email and/or text message to their cell phone by opting to receive neighborhood-specific or citywide alerts about public safety issues in their area.
Please remember that tip411 is not meant for emergencies, or even urgent need of police assistance. Call 911 for all emergencies and the non-emergency line 512-528-2800 for other police assistance. Tip411 is for providing information after a crime has occurred or to let us know about ongoing issues in your neighborhood.
Remember, if you can't or don't want to download the free LPDTIP App, you can always text your tip from phones that have text messaging capabilities. Your service plan texting rates will apply. To send a text tip, simply:
Text 847411, then type the keyword LPDTIP, add a space, and then type your tip information.
