The Appleton Police Department has contracted with TipSoft to provide 24-hour anonymous crime reporting service to the citizens of Appleton. With TipSoft the Appleton Police Department offers the community two new methods of submitting anonymous crime tip messages via mobile texting and TipSoft's web tip form on the internet.
The Appleton Police Department relies upon citizens to work with them as partners in identifying perpetrators of crimes and bringing them to justice. While direct reporting to the police is the most desirable way of doing this, the police department recognizes that, for a variety of reasons, not all citizens are comfortable doing this. TipSoft provides a mechanism which allows all citizens to report crimes without fear.
Using a cell phone:
- Text your tip to 274-637
- Start your message with the keywords: APDTIPS (To reach us, your message must begin with APDTIPS)
Using the web:
- Click here to go to the TipSoft website.
- Fill out the form and submit your crime tip via the internet.
Tips submitted through all of these methods are encrypted, entirely confidential, completely anonymous and they are immediately and securely transmitted.
These crime tip methods are for Non-Emergency information only. If you need an immediate police response do not use TipSoft - call our department at 920-832-5500 or 9-1-1.
