BLAIRSTOWN TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – Blairstown Township police now has a way for citizens to share important public safety information anonymously with police by sending a secure message about crimes or suspicious activity and receive police alerts by downloading the free “Blairstown PD” app.

“We believe the public is our greatest law enforcement resource. Our new App, along with tip411 anonymous text a tip system, will help our residents play a more active role in keeping Blairstown safe. The anonymous text a tip system, the new App from tip411 enables the public to share an anonymous tip with police and lets the officers respond back creating an anonymous two-way conversation,” police said.

Anyone with a cell phone may also send an anonymous tip to Blairstown Police by texting BLAIRSTOWN and their message/tip to 847411 (tip411). You can also sign up to recieve SMS text messaging alerts.

The app and tip411 anonymous text a tip system are 100% anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before police see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender. “This system has been successful in communities across the U.S.,” said Terry Halsch, President of tip411. “Departments have been helped tremendously by members of the public who have sent anonymous messages to police with important information that often leads to arrests.”

The app can be downloaded for free via the Google Play Store or iTunes app store.
