This can help identify issues like:

  • Vandalism
  • Unattended Package
  • Disruptive Behavior
  • Gang Activity
  • Drug Dealing
  • Theft
  • Drinking in Public
  • Weapons Possession

Implementation:

  • Your campus name will appear on the TipNow mobile-app
  • You will be assigned a new email address and/or a local number, and stakeholders will be able to send tips about suspicious activity by text/email.
  • You will get access to an administrator web portal to manage and address incoming tips from anywhere you have internet access.
  • Administrators can be created and each of them will have a unique user id and password to access the web portal.

Tip now is an innovative way for transit officials to engage the community into helping keep their transit service safe. Riders will have the ability to send anonymous tips to alert officials about issues related to safety and security of the system.
