Report a crime using a text message from your cell phone

The Text-A-Tip service is anonymous. Here is how to use it: In the 'To' box of the text message, type 274637. In the 'Subject' box, type WLPD followed by your tip. Within a minute, you will receive a text response with your alias. This is just verification that your text has been received. If the officer needs further information, he or she may contact you through text. Remember, the officer does not know your identity or your location.
