How do I Text a Tip?

There are three main parts to a text message Tip:

  1. The Short Code replaces a phone number. The one assigned to Crime Stoppers is CRIMES (274637).
  2. Key Words are used to ensure that the tip is directed to the proper place. Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers' key word is: Ktown
  3. The Message contains the key word initially and then the actual text message.

For Example

A tipster sends their first message. They text 'Ktown' plus their tip information to CRIMES (274637). Crime Stoppers then responds with a confirmation and a unique code number.

The tipster may respond back to Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers by simply replying. No key word or any other identifier is needed for any subsequent contact with Crime Stoppers from that cell phone. You need only text CRIMES (274637) and you are in touch with Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers.

A two-way dialogue through this encrypted system is possible as well, always protecting the anonymity of the tipster. Crime Stoppers will still not know who the texter is.
