Howell Police Text-a-Tip is a technology program that allows concerned Howell residents, business owners and visitors to easily, quickly and anonymously provide information about non-emergency criminal or suspicious activity – such as personal, property and drug crimes – to the Howell Police Department without exposing their personal identities or information.

P3 Tips is not monitored 24/7 and is not for an emergency or a crisis. Any emergency or crisis situation must be reported by calling 911, according to a press release.

To report a non-emergency tip, go to online or download the P3Tips app in App Store or Google Play and follow the prompts from there.

P3 Tips encourages citizens to actively participate in keeping their community safe. Should responding police officers need more information, they can establish direct dialogue with the tipster via P3 Tips push notifications and real-time chat. Tipsters are also able to upload relevant photos, videos, audio recordings and documents, according to the press release.

Since its 2017 launch in Howell, P3 Tips has been sponsored annually by the Howell Alliance. The Howell Alliance collaborates across the community to prevent substance abuse, underage drinking and marijuana use, alcoholism, tobacco/nicotine use, vaping and other at-risk behaviors.

Howell Alliance stakeholders include law enforcement, educators, municipal officials, businesses, civic organizations and concerned citizens, according to the press release.
