The San Joaquin Delta College District Police Department has announced that students, faculty and staff can now use their mobile phones to provide anonymous tips to District Police. The service, called TipSoft, allows students to send anonymous tips online, via smartphone, or by sending a text message to “CRIMES” (274637) with the keyword DELTA from any mobile phone.
“In a school setting, it’s often imperative that information be conveyed to authorities quickly,” said Officer Jim Bock. “We are dedicated to maintaining Delta College as one of the safest public locations in the county, and with TipSoft, students, faculty and staff will know that it’s safe for them to do the right thing without ever disclosing their identity.”
TipSoft allows District Police and students to have a two-way dialog that is completely secure and anonymous. Students should use TipSoft to report any safety-related information, including bullying, suicide prevention, suspicious activity, drug use or information about crimes that are being planned in the community or schools. Additionally, District Police will be able to send brief crime prevention tips to those who sign up for the service.
“The San Joaquin Delta College Police Department is demonstrating its concern and sensitivity to its students and community by adopting this technology,” said Greg Whisenant, founder and CEO of CrimeReports. “With TipSoft, students can take an active role in making their schools and communities safer.”
Currently used by over 800 schools and law enforcement agencies throughout the country, TipSoft, which is provided by CrimeReports, allows text message providers to remain anonymous by encrypting the text messages, assigning them a unique ID, and routing them through secure servers, protecting the personal details of the information provider.
