The Crime Stoppers app is a tool officials are using to fight back against criminals.
The app, called P3, allows residents to report crimes and enter all the known information of the crime at the time.
Police say people do not have to include your name nor can any of the information provided be traced back to you.
Sid Newman, the executive director of Greater Baton Rouge Crime Stoppers, says the app is a huge step in progress to reduce crime in the city as anonymous tips have led to more than 13,000 crimes being solved since the 1980s.
