Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 11, 2015 13A District attorney, S-Club co-i!!ost supper On Wednesday, March 5, the District Attorney's Office and the Quincy High School S-Club co-host the Community Supper in Quincy. Enchiladas, rice, beans and salad were greeted with an enthusiastic response from the 166 community members in attendance, said District Attorney David Hollister. The meal was made possible by a private donation and the hard work of volunteers. "We are pretty short-handed right now due to staffing issues and a number of trials," said Hollister. "The S-Club really stepped up on short notice and made this wonderful event possible."

Tipster s can now text anonymous information, including photographs, to the Californians Turn in Poachers and Polluters (CalTIP) program via "tip411" (numerically, 847411). CDFW wildlife officers can respond directly, resulting in an anonymous two-way conversation. Users must start the text message with the word "Caltip": In the phone number line, type 847411. In the message line, type Caltip (followed by the message/tip). In conjunction with tip411, CDFW is launching a CalTIP smartphone application that similarly enables the public to share an anonymous tip and/or photograph with wildlife officers and lets the officers converse anonymously with the -tipster, The CalTIP app can be downloaded for free via the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store. Standard message and data rates may apply. Anonymous tips can also be submitted from CDFW's website at ttp://lit.ly/lw6RON5. Both the CalTIP app and tip411 are completely anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before wildlife officers see the tips. "We believe the public is our greatest law enforcement resource," said CDFW Lt. Michael Milotz, CalTIP coordinator. "Tip4!l and the CalTIP app will give us another tool to combat pollution and the unlawful take and commercialization of California's wildlife." During the two-month pilot period, CDFW will collect usage data to help determine whether tip411 and the CalTIP app will be permanently added to the CalTIP program. CalTIP is a confidential secret witness program that encourages the public to provide factual information leading to the arrest of poachers and polluters. The program is funded by penalty assessments generated by fines from wildlife violators and polluters. The existing CalTIP confidential secret witness phone number, 888-334-2258, will remain operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Wildlife officers encourage anyone who witnesses a poaching or polluting violation, or who has information about a violation, to report it using any means available.
