The Smithville Police Department has started to use an anonymous Text-A-Tip service


How Text-A-Tip works:


  • Text 64089 and your message to CRIMES (274637). Your message must begin with 64089.
  • When your message is received at CRIMES, your name and cell phone number will be stripped from the message before it is forwarded to the Police Department.  
  • When submitting a tip, a randomly generated user id is assigned to your tip.
  • The user id is the only information sent with your tip to the Smithville Police Department. 
  • Your signature should be disabled before sending the tip or else it will appear in the body of the tip.
  • Text-A-Tip provides anonymous two-way communication between the tipster and SPD. 
  • Text-A-Tip allows officers to contact the tipster if they need additional information to follow-up on the tip effectively.  
  • Again, the tipster remains anonymous to the Smithville Police Department throughout the whole process.
  • Text-A-Tip can be used to report information on any crime but the main focus is providing information on the following crimes:
  • Terrorism
  • Information on Homicides
  • Information on Violent Crimes (Assaults, Armed Robberies, Home Invasions, Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, etc.)
  • Information on Drug Crimes
  • Information on Criminal gangs and their members
  • Information on Illegal Gun Sales and Illegal Gun Possession
  • Fugitives
  • Crimes on School Property
  • Information on Habitual Offenders or Repeat Offenders
  • Suspicious Activity
  • You will receive an immediate text reply that will include a confidential I.D. number.
  • If you use Text a Tip again, you may include your confidential I.D. number, but it is your choice. Text a Tip is totally anonymous.
