Today, thanks to an RCMP media release, I learned what a Nodwell is and I also learned about 'tipsubmit.com'. Apparently this online site uses special software to encrypt and make anonymous tips it receives on crimes.
Here's some introductory information on this website:
Do you have information about a crime?
If so, submit your information here anonymously. You may be eligible for a cash reward!
Tips submitted through this website are encrypted, entirely confidential, completely anonymous and are immediately and securely transferred directly to the law enforcement agencies which use our TipSoft - Tip Management application.
After submitting your tip, you will be provided with your own unique ID number that you will use when checking the status of your tip or picking up your reward. Never submit an emergency tip here. Please call 911 if it is an emergency.
For Law Enforcement
TipSoft is the industry leading solution for guaranteed secure and anonymous web tips!
Discover how much additional intel you could be receiving from those who otherwise shy away from phoning you with information.
Our web tips are guaranteed secure and anonymous and are very easy to implement and use! Not only do you receive your tips as encrypted Adobe PDF files via email, but they are also seamlessly and securely delivered right into TipSoft, our industry leading tip management software. An incredibly effective secure and anonymous intelligence gathering tool for both Community and Student based Crime Stoppers Programs.
For your added information and pleasure, a Nodwell is a large tracked vehicle ("tracked" as in having tracks rather than wheels.)
