The Duluth Police Department has launched a new smartphone application to help the public fight crime.

Chief Gordon Ramsay announced Thursday that the department has launched DPDTIP, a free application for iPhone and Android users. The application allows citizens to send crime tips anonymously to the police department.

"When citizens get involved and provide crime tips it helps keep our community safe," said Chief Ramsay, "Now the new phone apps make reporting tips even more convenient."

Find the application in the Apple App Store or in Google Play and search "Duluth Police Department" or "DPDTIP."

Tips can be sent through cell phones by text messaging 847411 and then entering "DPDtip" as the keyword before entering their tip. Standard text rates apply.
