While tip411 should never be a replacement for calling 911, many agencies have had success involving their emergency dispatchers in checking and responding to tips and allowing for 24/7 coverage.

We made a decision as an organization that we wanted give virtual real time feedback to any received tips. That’s when we gave additional responsibility to our Communications Center Supervisors to monitor the system after hours and respond to tips when needed, while the Crime Analysis Unit remains in charge of responding to tips during business hours and cataloging and assigning each received tip.” – Major David Dalton, Clearwater, Florida Police
