11/15/2012 - PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Air
Force Office of Special Investigations recently announced a new
initiative to move its EagleEyes "tip line" into the virtual world.
In an effort to better engage the community and prevent threats to the
United States Air Force, individuals will now be linked with technology
to be able to send anonymous information about suspicious or illegal
activity. Through a Smartphone application, the web, or by text message
tipsters may also submit relevant photos and documents, and follow up on
the results of their tips.
"The Tip Line allows individuals to anonymously report criminal or
suspicious activity affecting the Air Force to AFOSI through the use of
their phone or the internet," said Special Agent Wittwer, AFOSI 8th
Field Investigations Region.
From cyber attack to espionage, fraud and sexual assault, there are many
real threats against the Air Force. This is one way the community can
aid in identifying threats and report information in a virtually
effortless manner many are more comfortable with.
Individuals may send information about suspicious activity by texting
'AFOSI' and their tip to 274637 (CRIMES), or through the online tip line
at: www.tipsubmit.com/WebTips.aspx?AgencyID=1111, or the AFOSI web page at: http://www.osi.af.mil.
Smartphone users may download the tip application from their mobile
provider's marketplace by selecting "AFOSI" under USA Federal Agency.
