Besides helping with Project 365, the city's website provides police with several sources to follow up leads on criminal activity citywide, Wright said.
Citizens can anonymously tip police about possible criminal activity, he said. They can fill out an online form, send police a text message, or download an iPhone or Android app.
Tips most often are on narcotics-related activity, he said. These and other tips have been helpful. “We have had tips help us lodge a case.”
He wants to assure people that tips provided to police are anonymous. He said text messaging the police in particular often worries people, but the messages that come in through the system are encrypted and police only see the message, not a name or phone number.
“We truly don't know who it is,” he said.
