‘U-Tip’ allows sources to remain anonymous

Jul 20, 2012 by

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 naming you as the source.

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 2011 semester, Dr. Moore said.
