Rockford Scanner™: City Of Rockford release information on what their new communications tool is, that will help further our commitment to making Rockford a safer community.


If you have any information:

I am not going to download the app, due to the very poor user reviews from users outside of our area.
If anyone downloads the app, and uses it. Can you screenshot it and send us your personal review.

I think it is a good idea and it gives citizens an option to report tips.
They say it keeps you anonymous.   But I have a gut feeling, that is a PR thing to get tips.
If you are sending a text tip, they are going to have your number.

Just like crimestoppers.
You call them,  and ONLY get paid, if the suspect is caught and the suspect pays the crimestopper fees after pleading guilty in court.
The SUSPECT is the one who actually pays the crimestopper fees…

So I am sure this has some some hidden stuff, the public is unaware of.
Like all the tools the police provide the community, to turn in tips…

If you do not want to download the app, it appears there is another option:
Text RPDTIP (your tip) to 847411.

How to:
* You would make a new text.
* Add RPDTIP, and then add your tip you want to send RPD.
* Then send it to: 847411

Or you can keep relaying your tips to Rockford Scanner, and we will definitely keep you ANONYMOUS. 
And relay your tips to Rockford PD, and keep you 100% ANONYMOUS 


Rockford PD announce their new app

RS Note: Too bad it wasn’t un-encrypting the police scanners… 

From the Rockford PD:

Rockford Police Chief Carla Redd, along with Mayor Tom McNamara,
will hold a media conference tomorrow, April 19, 2022, to launch a new
communications tool that will help further our commitment to making Rockford a safer

Wonder what that tool may be…
