Cops To Public: ‘Let Your Fingers Do The Talking’

City police officials are reminding the text-crazed public to text crime tips to the NYPD CRIMESTOPPERS website.

Officials said the website is falling behind in collecting information from the public. “It could be that we have never held a campaign to inform people about the website,” a police spokesperson said.

“People tend to ignore the website and the text option and continue to call in tips to the hotline,” the spokesperson said. “We know that’s not because they don’t know how to text a message.”

Police officials are urging the public to text crime tips to www.nypdcrimestoppers.com. All personal information is kept strictly confidential, and you could be eligible for a reward of up to $2,500 in certain cases.
