If you see something, TEXT something! It’s anonymous!
YaleTip is the Yale Police’s anonymous and safe cell phone texting service, available to all members of the campus and local communities. When community members use YaleTip, they help inform YPD of potential threats, illegal activities, or simply questionable actions that might threaten someone’s sense of personal security – all without revealing the sender’s identity.
Every YaleTip message is received by a third-party vendor, which instantaneously forwards the text to YPD, without releasing contact information. In the case that YPD needs more information or has questions to ask, all correspondences are routed through the vendor, without releasing of contact information.
