Benton Harbor Department of Public Safety releases crime tip mobile app
BENTON HARBOR, Mich.—The Benton Harbor Department of Public Safety on Friday released a mobile app that will allow residents to connect with the department to share information, view alerts and submit anonymous tips.
According to DPS, the system is completely anonymous and removes all identifying information before police see tips.
The service is for activity within the city of Benton Harbor only. Any tips sent must provide information about activities within the city, not including Benton Township.
DPS is reminding residents that the app is not a substitution for 911 emergencies or for requests for an officer.
The app, called Benton Harbor DPS, is available for free to download from the Google Play Store or the iTunes App Store.
