Prichard residents have new crime fighting tool


PRICHARD, Ala. (WALA) – Prichard residents have a new tool to fight crime. A service called “TipSoft” allows people to submit crime tips anonymously through the internet, a text message or any Android or iPhone device.

Residents can download the “TipSoft” or “Tip Submit” app onto their Android or iPhone device for free. Once it is downloaded, users can submit secure and anonymous tips straight to Prichard Police.  Officials are encouraging residents to submit any information regarding suspicious, nuisance and criminal activity.

Residents can also submit tips anonymously via text messaging.  To submit a tip, anyone can text “theTip” to 274637 and then a message.

Anonymous tips can also be submitted through the city’s website. If you are filling out a tip form on a potential or wanted suspects, officials ask that you fill out as much information as you may know including physical description, any known addresses, gang affiliations and where he/she may be found.

“TipSoft” is part of Prichard’s proactive effort to prevent, reduce and solve crime.
