Crime Stoppers Text A Tip Program 01/30/2014
January 30, 2014 11:53 AM
Starting in January 2014, the Galesburg Area Crime Stoppers began using a new software that allows tipsters to submit an anonymous crime stoppers tip via text messaging.
All the tipster has to do is type GALESBURG and the message/tip and send it to 274637 (CRIMES on most cell phones). The tipster can text STOP to 274637 to cancel the tip and/or text HELP to 274637 for help. Message and data rates may apply.
A response message is sent to the tipster to include a unique code for the tipster to use if any payouts are available from the tip.
As always, tips can also be made by calling 309/344-0044.
All tips sent by text or by phone are anonymous.
