            Last January the Kodiak Police Department implemented a new system that lets people send anonymous tips via text message or the internet. It's an add-on to the nationwide Crime Stoppers program that previously was only accessible by phone. The service is called TipSoft. It receives the anonymous tips and removes any identifying information about the phone or computer from which the tip was sent before passing it on to law enforcement. Detective Sergeant Milton Bohac says KPD has received about double the number of tips in 2011 than previous years. He says the service is an important part of their work.

 

--          (Crime Stoppers 1                  :21                   "We're a small town and a small police force. Most of these crimes going on out there we need the public's help in solving. It's those little extra pieces of the puzzle that are very important to us so that we can present a case to the district attorney that is strong enough to overcome the reasonable doubt requirement in court.")

 

            Bohac says tips about domestic violence and child endangerment are most common through Crime Stoppers.
