Mineola (WALK) - Do you have information that might help police solve a crime? To report it, there's now an app for that.
Nassau police have unveiled "Text-A-Tip," a smartphone app that lets the public anonymously text tips to Nassau Crime Stoppers. Information that leads to an arrest would be eligible for a cash reward of up to $5,000.
The app allows users to send tips via text, telephone, or by submitting a tip form, all of which can be accessed by tapping a button. Visitors can also see photos of most-wanted criminals and suspects.
The Text-A-Tip app is available free on Android, iPhone and Windows platforms, and can be used by just about any smartphone that's under 2 years old. To download, search Nassau Crime Stoppers in the App Store on your phone.
