Submit A Tip By Text Message 

TipSoft SMS, short message service, is 100% anonymous through cloaking. No one will know the identity of the text tipster. The technology routes messages through a server that encrypts cell phone numbers before they get to police. The technology also allows investigators to securely reply back to the cell phone without compromising the tipster's identity.

Some of the advantages of text messaging includes being able to communicate in real time with texters. It also allows people to notify police of information when calling may not be feasible or safe. Texting a tip is easy. All you have to do is:

  • Send Text Message Tips to:
    CRIMES (274-637)
  • Use the keyword:

Text STOP to 274637 to cancel. Text HELP to 274637 for help. Message & Data Rates May Apply. TipSoft Terms and ConditionsPrivacy Policy, and Terms of Use.

Submit A Tip Using An App

Mesa citizens can now use their iPhone® and Android™ based smart phone to send anonymous crime tips to the Mesa Police Department. For the first time, iPhone® and Android™ phone users can provide anonymous crime fighting tips, including smart phone photographs and video, to the Mesa Police Department.

The service, called TipSubmit, allows citizens to send anonymous tips online using a custom "app" from a mobile phone. The widespread use of smart phones makes it easy for the public to help law enforcement agencies fight crime. And with the TipSubmit apps, they can know that it's safe for them to do the right thing without ever disclosing their identity.

TipSubmit allows agencies and members of the public to have a two-way dialog that is completely secure and anonymous. The service specifically allows smart phone users to remain anonymous by encrypting the messages, assigning them a unique alias and ID, and routing them through secure servers, protecting the personal details of the information provider.
