TipSoft Anonymous Tip System

The Village of Fontana Police Department is partnering with the Walworth County Crime Stoppers to bring an anonymous tip system called TipSoft to the Village of Fontana. TipSoft will allow community members to anonymously provide tips to the Village of Fontana Police Department either online or by text message. 

Those wishing to provide a tip by text message will be able to do so by sending a text to 274637 (CRIMES) with the agency keyword “TIP4WC” and an attached message.  Tips will also be able to be sent online by clicking on the “Submit a Tip” TipSoft link that will be found below as well as the Village of Fontana Police Department’s Facebook page. Once the tip is submitted it will be sent to the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office where it will be sorted and then directed to the Village of Fontana Police Department.

We look forward to receiving your tips, but remember if there is an emergency, always dial 911 so that Police and Emergency Services can respond as quickly as possible!

Submitting a tip using a cell phone:

  • Text your tip to 274637 (CRIMES).
  • Start your message with the agency keyword “TIP4WC” (agency key word) plus your message. Standard rates may apply.

Submitting a tip using the web:

  • Click on this Submit a Tip link.
  • Fill out the form and submit your crime tip.

Tips submitted through these methods are encrypted, entirely confidential, completely anonymous, and are immediately and securely transmitted.
