Richland Police Department Launches Anonymous Tip Reporting
The Richland Police Department is increasing their online services with another option to report information. This new Anonymous Tip Reporting allows the community to share information with the department from their smartphone, tablet or computer and remain anonymous. While the new service is not intended for reporting crimes that are currently taking place, the department hopes the anonymity will allow for information sharing that might not happen if someone feared they would be identified.
As with the Community and Police (CAP) Groups, Crime Data Portal and Voluntary Camera Partnership; Richland Police are striving to use current platforms to connect with the community and increase the level of customer service provided. This is not a program to replace a phone call to dispatch, but is another option to share information and remain anonymous. Anonymous Tips Reporting (ATR) can be done online and quickly at www.ci.richland.wa.us/ATR.
