What is tip411?
tip411 is an anonymous tip collection system designed to allow the public to report non-emergency criminal activity anonymously to Crime Alert Berks County with the possibility of receiving a cash reward for good tips. You may submit a tip in several ways: by calling our tip-line at 1.877.373.9913, by using your mobile phone to text tips to keyword ALERTBERKS along with your tip to 847411, by sharing information through our integrated web form here, or by downloading our free smartphone app from iTunes
or Google Play
Our tip system is anonymous
When you use our tip system, you will be issued a randomly generated access code which is also used as your "tipster" ID. That's what we see when we receive the tip. We are then able to converse with you using that ID which is provided bytip411.com and not us.
When submitting a tip
Please be as descriptive as possible (including- Who, What, When, Where, and How Do You Know).
By submitting a tip through our service
You acknowledge that the tip must first be examined in the same manner as all reports of criminal activity that are currently handled by Crime Alert Berks County. You also acknowledge that the information you provide does not automatically represent that a investigation is now or will in the future be opened based on this tip alone.
This service is intended for non-emergency
