New anonymous crime tip phone application launched in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - When you see a crime happening, reporting it is now as easy as sending a text message.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - When you see a crime happening, you can report it anonymously and easily starting now.

Nearly 50 law enforcement agencies in Utah have signed on to be a part of the program called 'TipSoft'. It allows people to text tips by typing "CRIMES" (274637) and adding an agency-specific keyword. You can also submit a tip by going to this website: http://www.tipsubmit.com or by downloading a free app for iPhone or Android.

Utah's Attorney General Mark Shurtleff says one in 14 tips results in an arrest. One in nine tips clears a case.

"Bad guys are using technology so why not good guys, right?" says Shurtleff.  He says the law enforcement agencies have to keep pace with technology to effectively fight crime.
