Crime Prevention

A bill (S. 956) introduced by Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) would authorize grants to state and local police departments to implement anonymous tip programs using text messages. Under the bill, such programs would be administered locally and police would be required to strip the texts of any identifying information. Police departments would be required to train sufficient personnel to intercept and respond to the tips and to promote the program, especially to youths.
