Did you witness a crime and want to report it anonymously? Now there’s an app for that!

Fairfax County Crime Solvers has launched an app that allows the public to anonymously submit tips to police through their local Crime Solvers program.

Tip Submit employs software Crime Solvers already uses to gather text and email tips.

The free app can auto-locate the nearest Crime Solvers program or law enforcement agency, or you can manually select a location for your tip. You can also submit photos and videos with your tips.

Many jurisdisctions protect tipsters when they provide information to a certified Crime Solvers program.

Tip Submit is the first app of its kind and is available for download on iPhone and Android phones.
