Ayden police now lets users anonymously submit tips online
Police in one Eastern Carolina town are working to make it easier and more modern to submit tips online.
The Ayden Police Department now lets you submit a tip on Facebook. Users can go to the town's Facebook page and click "Submit a Tip" on the left side of the page.
This is part of a program called tip411 that Ayden is employing to help better inform the community of any crime alerts.
The tip service will ask basic questions such as the issue, where it is happening and any other details.
Ayden police remind residents in the event of an emergency, they shouldn't submit it online and instead call 911.
