Text-a-Tip Handy Post Holiday Weekend

While you’re out celebrating Fourth of July, it’s always good to keep in mind that the Laredo Police Department is not just available for emergencies, but also available in case you’d like to report non-emergency criminal activity anonymously.

The Laredo Police Department’s text-a-tip program allows for the people of Laredo to chime in with tips related to criminal activity.

Well 911 is the option for emergencies, but with people celebrating for the holiday, the text-a-tip program could come in handy if non-emergency situations develop in the wake of fourth of July celebrations.

The Fourth of July allows for people to celebrate their independence, but if someone decides to use that independence to take part in criminal action here in the gateway city The Laredo Police Department would like to know about it.

Laredo’s 411 text-a-tip program provides the community an avenue for providing information related to non-emergency criminal wrong-doing.

“It’s a very specialized module for people to utilize so they can give us their information completely anonymous and so they could be free of any fear of being identified and they can give us any information they want”, said Joe Baeza.
