Frequently Asked Questions:
WHAT IS TIP411?
Tip411 is an anonymous tip line designed to allow the public to report non-emergency criminal activity directly to the Mt. Lebanon Police Department. You may submit a tip in several ways – by using your mobile phone to text tips to keyword MLPDTIPS along with your tip to 847411, by sharing information through our integrated web form, or by downloading our free smartphone app from iTunes Store or Google Play Store (Search for Mt Lebanon PD).
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 by tip411.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 are currently examined by the Mt. Lebanon Police Department. 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 USE ONLY
ALWAYS DIAL 9-1-1 IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY OR CRIME / INCIDENT IN PROGRESS!!
