The DuPage County Sheriff’s Department wants residents to know they have the power to help fight crime right at their fingertips.
Cell phone users can report an anonymous crime tip, or “ACT,” in their communities via text message by simply entering the keyword “SHERIFF” followed by the message to “C-R-I-M-E-S” or 2-7-4-6-3-7.
The text will then be encrypted and sent to the sheriff’s office who can respond back but won’t ever know the user’s identity or even their cell phone number.
You can also report an anonymous tip using a computer by going to dupagesheriff.org and clicking the ACT Program link.
