The campus community can now use the TIP411 safety alert system to send an anonymous tip via text message to the University of Redlands Public Safety Department regarding safety concerns. Users should text the keyword UOFR and the message to 847411. A response will come from the text system promptly, to acknowledge it was received.
The TIP411 text service is not for emergencies. Items that should be texted will be those that Public Safety should be alerted about where no person is in imminent danger. Emergencies still need to be reported using the emergency phone number or, by using a blue phone on campus if accessible, where the caller can speak to Public Safety dispatch officers directly.
For those who prefer to use an Internet interface, there is a web tip form where community members can submit their concerns online using this link: http://www.citizenobserver.com/cov6/app/webTipForm.html?id=10333.
Public Safety can be reached at 909-748-8888 or ext. 8888 on campus phones.
