Sanibel police launches anonymous tips via text

By SPD - | Nov 25, 2020

Community members can now share important public safety information anonymously with the Sanibel Police Department by sending a secure text message about crimes or suspicious activity on the island.

The SPD is launching tip411, an Internet-based tool that enables the public to text message an anonymous tip to police and lets officers respond back in real-time to create an anonymous two-way conversation. To send an anonymous tip, text the keyword SANIBEL and your tip to 847411.

Anonymous tips can also be submitted from the Sanibel Police Department’s Website at www.mysanibel.com/Departments/Police-including-Emergency-Management.

The tip411 system is 100 percent anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before it is received by the the police department and there is no way to identify the sender.

Always dial 911 for an emergency that requires immediate assistance.

For more information or questions, call the SPD 239-472-3111.
