Windham Police Launch New tip411 Anonymous Tip System for Customized Crime-Fighting
The Windham Police Department will now utilize tip411, a popular crime-fighting tool, that has been used successfully to reduce crime in over 1,500 communities across the United States.
When submitting a tip, the system removes all of your identifying information, and officers don’t receive any information about you -- not your name, not your phone number, not your address, nothing!
To use the system, you may send your tip one of three ways;
- Send a text message to 847411, then type the keyword WPDTIPS, add a space, type your tip info, and hit send.
- On your smartphone, down the free Windham PD app for iPhone and Android.
- Use the Anonymous Web Tip form on this website by clicking the tip411 logo.

Concealed Weapons Carry (Maine)
Maine law allows individuals who are 21 and older to carry concealed firearms without a permit unless prohibited from doing so. One exception to the age limit is an individual who is currently on active duty in the armed forces of the United States and is 18 years old. A person who is 18-20 years old, who is without the military exception, must apply for a concealed weapons permit. Visit here for further information. Remember that State law (Title 15 §2003-A) requires all persons who legally carry a concealed weapon without a permit and upon having contact with a law enforcement officer must notify the officer that she or he is in possession of a handgun.

Finding a furry friend in the era of COVID-19
(From the Federal Trade Commission)
If you’ve been thinking about adding a pet to your family, now may be a good time. In addition to pets offering unconditional love, companionship, and amusement, studies have shown that the bond between people and their pets has health benefits. Regular walking or playing with pets can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglyceride levels.
Keep these tips in mind:
- Work with a reputable animal shelter or rescue league that is local.
- Do your homework when buying a pet.
- Search online for the animal’s image.
- Don’t pay with a gift card or wire money.
