The Crystal Lake Police Department is a partner in the national anonymous tip text program,
“tip411." This program is an internet based tool that enables the public to text message an anonymous tip to police, and lets the police respond back creating a two way anonymous “chat."
A person who provides a tip that leads to a successful arrest and conviction is eligible for a reward through Crystal Lake Crimestoppers.
Anyone with a cell phone can send an anonymous tip to the Crystal Lake Police Department by texting the word CLPDTIP along with the tip information to 847411 (tip411). Anonymous web tips can also be submitted here.
This is 100% anonymous with all identifying information removed before the Police Department has the ability to see it. There’s no way to identify the sender (normal text messaging rates do apply)
If you have any questions, please contact Officer Eddie Pluviose at 815-356-3731.
This program was made possible through a generous donation by the Crystal Lake Crimestoppers.
