TJC announces anonymous tip system

Have a tip about suspicious activity on a Tyler Junior College campus or satellite facility but want to remain anonymous? The College has launched a new system that will accept your information without revealing your identity or location.

As a result of its contract with e2Campus, TJC now offers "U-Tip," a communication service that can provide mobile text messages directly to Campus Safety in an anonymous fashion.

"This service will allow students, employees and even visitors to our campuses and satellite facilities to report suspicious activity or provide crime tips without their identity being exposed," said Dr. Johnny Moore, TJC vice president of student affairs.

Individuals who wish to make a report or "tip" may do so by sending a text message to 79516, using the keyword of "tjctip."

The service was installed and tested during the Fall semester, Dr. Moore said.

"This is another example of TJC’s efforts to promote civility and safety in all areas," he added. "All tips and leads provided will be investigated by our Campus Safety office.

The person providing information will not be known, nor will their cell number or location. Only the information they provide will be revealed by the service."

Dr. Moore said efforts are under way to notify faculty, staff, students and visitors about the new service.
