"Text-A-Tip" - Rochester police can now get crime tips via TEXT
Staff reports • July 22, 2010

Rochester-area residents can now text crime tips to the Rochester Police Department.

Rochester Police Sgt. Gary Moxley today announced a new program where anyone can anonymously text a crime tip to city police officers. Tipsters are not required to leave his or her name in a message. Officers said they will not attempt to identify the owner of the cell number.

Send tips to 274637, which spells “crimes,” then type “TIP 177” at the start of the message, and then type your tip.

For those who prefer to share information on the phone, call CrimeStoppers at (585) 423-9300.
