Mayor Michael A. Nutter announced the Philadelphia Police Department’s (PPD) text tipline at yesterday’s Philly Tech Week Switch Philly event. The text tipline number is PPD TIP or 773847. Citizens can reach this tipline with any mobile device and the crime tips will be sent to the PPD, which will follow up on the information. The PPD text tipline is not for emergencies, but can be used to pass along information to police. This tipline is part of the City’s ongoing violence reduction efforts.

 

“We are using as many tools as possible so citizens can easily reach out to the police to report crimes, illegal guns or to provide tips that could lead to the arrest of dangerous criminals,” said Mayor Nutter. “This tipline is one more way that citizens of Philadelphia can take back their neighborhoods.

 

I would like to encourage Philadelphians to save this number in their phones. If you know something, say something. The police need partnership with our communities and neighborhoods to keep our streets safe. We will reduce crime in our city only if residents and their police work together.”

The PPD tipline is active and currently accepting tips. After sending a text, the sender will receive the message, “Your message has been received – thank you. We will contact you if further information is needed. If this is a true emergency, dial 911”.
