Montgomery County rolls out anonymous tip line mobile app. Gray Hall reports during Action News at 7 a.m. on August 12, 2018.

Montgomery County has a new way to anonymously report a tip about a crime.

The free mobile app called STOPit is simple to use on any cellphone.

Users can text information, a photo or video directly to the county's 911 Emergency Communications Center.

To participate, residents must download the app and input the access code, "MONTCOPA."

District Attorney Kevin Steele says non-urgent tips will be directed to the county's on-call detective.
