Text-A-Tip to stop underage drinking

Posted:
OSCEOLA (KWWL) -

A program that allows people to text officials with tips about drinking parties is underway in southern Iowa.

The "Text-A-Tip" program is a partnership between the Iowa State Patrol, local law enforcement agencies, and schools. The program was launched in nine Iowa counties including Adair, Adams, Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Ringgold, Taylor, Union and Wayne counties.

The goal of the program is to help shut down underage parties and prevent alcohol related injuries and death. People can text the location and time of house parties. The tipster can remain anonymous.

Tips can be sent to 641-799-2277.
