District Police have launched a new safety tool to the students at Delta College.
The new service is called Tipsoft and is a safe and anonymous way to report crime to campus authorities instantly.
Students can use their phone, smartphone or email to use the service.
“In a school setting, it is often imperative that information be conveyed to the authorities quickly,” said officer Jim Bock, in a press release sent out to campus. “We are dedicated to maintaining Delta College as one of the safest public locations in the county, and with Tipsoft, students, faculty, and staff will know that its safe for them to do the right thing without disclosing their identity.”
With the growing concern for safety, students and faculty can all be a part of reporting crimes and creating a safer area for everyone.
Tipsoft also offers a mobile application for smartphones.
The app allows for the instant conversation of an SMS message, but without the limitations of conventional messaging.
It includes unlimited-length messages, and is simple to use.
Tipsoft is provided by CrimeReports.
Crime Reports is an online crime-mapping system that includes an easy-to-use crime map. The map shows all crimes committed in a specified date range, and also shows registered sex offenders in the area.
