Conway "Text-A-Tip" program proving essential

CONWAY (Log Cabin Democrat) - Two years ago this week, the Conway Police Department implemented the Text-A-Tip program, and officials say usage is high and the program has helped solve several cases.

"We are in the age when this is how people choose to communicate. Even people who don't care to be anonymous use it because they are used to sending information this way," said La Tresha Woodruff, CPD public information officer.

Citizens can use the program to report tips related to crimes by texting the numerical equivalent to the word "crimes" (274637) and then typing the keyword "Conway" into the body of the message before sending the tip.

The program allows for anonymity, which can quell fears for those reporting sensitive information.
