Tips 411 & Notification Links

At the Mt. Lebanon Police Department, we always say, “If you see something, say something.” We often hear about something too late, with a casual “I thought about calling, but …” We have made it easy for you to give us important information that can prevent crime or help us find the source of criminal activity.

The first stop is to call 9-1-1 any time you need to speak with an officer, even if it is not an emergency. Your call will be triaged.


The Mt. Lebanon Police Department is increasing its crime-fighting arsenal with a new app to help residents connect with the department to find information, receive and view alerts, and submit anonymous tips from their smartphone.

Developed by Tip411, the Mt Lebanon PD app puts a powerful new crime-fighting tool into the hands of community members of all ages.  The Mt Lebanon PD app is available for download for free via the Google Play Store or iTunes App Store.

“We believe an informed community is a safer community,” said Mt. Lebanon Police Chief Jason Haberman.  “Our new app will help us better connect with and inform our residents while also giving them an anonymous way to reach out to us with information to help make Mt. Lebanon a safer place for all who live, work, and visit here.”

The Mt Lebanon PD app powered by Tip411 will greatly improve the public’s access to agency alerts, social media channels, important information, and more to help fight crime.

The Mt Lebanon PD app and Tip411 anonymous text a tip system are 100% anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before police see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender.

Residents in Mt. Lebanon without a smartphone will be able to send an anonymous text tip via their cell phone to police by texting keyword MLPDTIPS and their message/tip to 847411 (tip411).

Notification systems

Mt. Lebanon Police use two notification systems: We use LeboEmergency for life threatening notices, which include a call-to-action (such as evacuation or shelter-in-place orders.) Situations that might warrant this notification include: active shooters, escaped armed suspects, chemical leaks, missing fragile persons. We also use LeboALERTs for non-emergency notifications. Situations that might warrant this notification include: cancellation of overnight parking permissions due to snow or ice storm, crime trends/reminders, road closures, or requests for information after crimes have occurred. Learn more about both types here.

Police also sometimes will canvass neighborhoods when it makes more sense to talk to you directly. Police will always carry identification.
