LDWF Launches tip411 and iPhone App

Postby Ray » Sat Oct 08, 2011 5:39 am

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is now offering a new way to anonymously report
outdoor related violations to Enforcement Division agents. LDWF’s tip411 program is a part of their
Operation Game Thief Program, which may offer a cash reward for information leading to arrests or
To use the tip411 program, citizens can text LDWF and their tip to 847411 or download the “LADWF
Tips” iPhone app from the Apple iTunes store free of charge. CitizenObserver, the tip411 provider,
uses technology that removes all identifying information before LDWF receives the text so that LDWF
cannot identify the sender.
Texting or downloading the app enables the public to send anonymous tips to LDWF and lets LDWF
respond back, creating a two-way anonymous “chat.” Users of the app or texters can also send in
photos to help support their claim and be used as evidence.
“We’re proud to make this technology available to our citizens free of charge. This tip411 program will
help our citizens play an active role in helping us enforce current conservation rules and regulations,”
said LDWF Col. Winton Vidrine, head of the Enforcement Division. “This program will engage
younger folks in the process and it will save our agency time and resources. “
LDWF will monitor the tip411 program for incoming tips 24 hours a day.
LDWF also offers their Operation Game Thief 24 hour toll free hotline. Citizens can anonymously
report tips by calling 800/442-2511.
