Citizen Observer is an Internet-based community alert system which the Niles Police Department is a part of. The Citizen Observer program allows the Niles Police Department to quickly enter content about crimes or incidents, and within seconds, push that information out to the businesses, citizens, watch groups, and others that have signed up to receive those alerts. Citizen Observer also has an anonymous Text A Tip program through TIP411 simply text your tip to 847411 and place NILESPD in the body of the message along with your tip and then hit send. The tips are totally anonymous. To register, simply apply online.
