Anonymous Tips


UTPD has partnered with Tip411 to provide a means of anonymous communication to our community.

Tip411, a national  anonymous text program, adds a new dimension to the ‘eyes and ears’ on the street to help create a safer community.

Tip411 is an internet based tool that enables the public to text message an anonymous tip to police, and lets the police respond back creating a two way anonymous “chat”.

To send an anonymous tip via text message to the University of Tennessee Police Department, text the keyword UTPD and your message to 847411 (tip411). You can also report a tip online here.

Texting to tip411 is NOT an alternative to calling 911 – In any emergency, call 911.

You may also utilize this service by downloading the free UTPDTips app, on both iPhone and Android.
