Tip411 Service

Anonymous Text Messaging: The BUPD can receive text messages 24 hours a day anonymously (or the caller can make themselves known if they wish). To do this you text (SMS Message) to the number 847411 (which on a traditional phone pad is TIP 411). The person should enter "BU" (this is the keyword) then a space, then the message. Once this is done the person will no longer have to type "BU" for each message they send. The "thread" will remain open indefinitely until the caller texts the word "STOP". To open another thread you would have to again text "BU" to 847411. With a little practice this is easily mastered.

Please note that these messages can also be sent over the internet by using the TIP 411 link on our website:
