Police departments and law enforcement agencies are using text messaging to help solve crimes. Anderson Software is a company that provides software / technology that allows text messengers to anonymously send in a text message crime tip. The text message goes through a third party computer server, assigned an encrypted alias and then finally forwarded to the police. Many people feel that they will be identified as a snitch when informing the police of important information. By using this technology, some police believe that more people will help police in solving old crimes and preventing new ones from taking place.
