Help Fight Crime by using TIP411


Do you know of a crime or suspicious activity that should be reported to the DeSoto Police? You can now do it quickly and easily using the new TIP411 program available through the city website, smart phone app or Facebook.

TIP411 is a program that allows the public an opportunity to anonymously communicate information to the Police Department. It’s unique in that:
* Tips are given via cell phone.
* All “tipsters” remain anonymous.
* Law Enforcement can relay information back and forth with tipsters who remain anonymous.

The innovative idea behind TIP411 is to engage our community more so than ever before by utilizing everyday technology. In order to send an anonymous tip to the DeSoto Police Department, text keyword DESOTO and the tip to 847411. Tips can also be submitted anonymously via the City of DeSoto’s Facebook page at or through the city’s website at This is not a replacement for 911. If you witness an emergency situation, please call 911 immediately.
