How does it work?

tip411 is an anonymous tip collection system designed to allow the public to report non-emergency criminal activity anonymously to Crime Alert Berks County with the possibility of receiving a cash reward for good tips. You may submit a tip in several ways: by calling our tip-line at 1.877.373.9913, by using your mobile phone to text tips to keyword ALERTBERKS along with your tip to 847411, by sharing information through our integrated web form here, or by downloading our free smartphone app from iTunes or Google Play. Note: Tips submitted on this page will not result in a reward. You must use one of the others ways to call or send in a tip to receive a tip code.

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 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 that are currently handled by Crime Alert Berks County. 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
