Communication Survey

The Palestine Police Department is conducting research into the feasibility of introducing a new communication program called Citizen Observer Tip411, which would allow for outgoing alerts and information to citizens by SMS text, and/or email, plus two way communication of anonymous tip information (via cell phone, Apple & Android App, or web application on our PD website) to supplement our criminal investigations. The package would also include a display of crime mapping information which would also allow interactive anonymous tip information to be processed through the police department. The service is free for citizens to sign up but would require a paid contract by the Police Department to implement the program.
