New app links directly to drug task force

The Southwest Metro Drug Task Force now allows the public to share important public safety information anonymously by sending a secure message and/or photos about narcotics activity within the communities of Carver, McLeod, and Scott counties, and South Lake Minnetonka via a free smartphone app.

Developed by tip411,the SWMTip App can be downloaded for free via the Google Play Store, and iTunes App Store.

“We believe the public is our greatest law enforcement resource,” said Commander Phil Nawrocki of Southwest Metro Drug Task Force. “Our new SWMTip App, along with our existing tip411 anonymous text a tip system, will help our residents play a more active role in keeping the communities within Carver, McLeod, and Scott counties, and South Lake Minnetonka safe.”

Like the department’s existing tip411 anonymous text a tip system, the new SWMTip App from tip411 enables the public to share an anonymous tip with the Southwest Metro Drug Task Force and lets the agents respond back, creating an anonymous two-way conversation.
