We recently launched an anonymous text tool courtesy of TipSoft that doesn’t require you to download an app. You only need four things:
- A phone capable of sending and receiving text messages.
- MVPD’s number: 274637
- Include “mvtips” in the body of your text so it comes to us. This only needs to be in your initial text message.
- Good intel. You can add attachments, like photos and video, to your text message.
What type of activity do people report?
- Non-urgent, illegal activity
- Info on unsolved cases
- Narcotics sales and/or distribution
- Wanted suspect
- Crimes being planned in the community
- Crimes at schools
MVPD is fortunate to have another way for you to share info with us. But remember, text tips are not a replacement for dialing 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency!
When we receive a tip, this is what the interaction looks like from our end:
