    From JFPO:

    ALERT
    March 20th, 2013
    And so it begins ...


    The State of New York has resorted to a "turn in your neighbor" program, for enforcement. Knowing that people will not willingly comply, the state has resorted to a tried and true tactic of turning the citizens upon each other to aggrandize the power of the state.

    Does this strike a responsive historical cord, in anyone???

    Press Release:

    At a time when all of us are finding ourselves doing more with less, a reminder about a resource available from New York State that can assist you in your efforts to solve cases, prevent crime and better serve and protect your communities.

    The state has established a toll-free tip line - 1-855-GUNSNYS (1-855- 486-7697) to encourage residents to report illegal firearm possession. The tip line also allows for information to be submitted via text -- individuals can text GUNTIP and their message to CRIMES (274637). While the state will provide the administrative support and fund the rewards, the investigation and validity of the tip will be up to each local department.

    To spread the word about this free resource, New York State is planning a comprehensive campaign, including public service announcements that will air on television and radio stations across Upstate.

    The tip line can provide your agencies with another avenue for receiving intelligence about crimes being committed in your jurisdictions. This initiative is designed for communities where no tip lines are in place and is not meant to replace existing gun tip lines.

    Here's how the tip line operates:

    The New York State Police staff the tip line 24 hours a day. Upon receiving a call, troopers will solicit as much information as possible regarding a firearm tip, while allowing the individual to remain anonymous. The caller will be informed that this program is not the traditional gun buyback program but rather is focused on identifying individuals who are carrying an illegal firearm.

    The State Police will in turn contact the appropriate police agency with the lead to initiate an investigation. Staff from the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) will follow up with that agency to determine the validity of the lead. Once the investigation is completed, the police agency would convey to DCJS the outcome of the investigation.

    If the information leads to an arrest for the illegal possession of a firearm, the anonymous 'tipster' will be awarded $500. DCJS staff will handle all of the financial transactions.

    State Police staff will explain the program in its entirety upon notifying an agency that a lead has been generated for their jurisdiction. If you have any questions in the interim, please contact DCJS Deputy Commissioner Tony Perez in the Office of Public Safety at 518-485-7610.

    First thing New Yorkers should do is start turning in the Politicians and Police departments that have illegal guns. Especially the NYPD guys that carry glocks and Browning Hi-Powers.

    The folks of NY should keep that line humming 24 hours a day with bogus reports of gun owners. Keep the state police going 24 hours a day and exhaust the monetary resources funding it.

    Pat, I like the way you think. Also file false claims against anti-gunners.

    Hey our resident liberal says it's OK to make bogus child abuse calls to the cops, so why not bogus illegal gun calls?

    How about the people who collected cash for reporting suspected druggies? Cards offering $250,000 for a tip were sent with motor vehicle renewals many years ago. Seems guns are now replacing drugs?

    Are these shortcuts to law enforcement when these days some of the most pious people can be setup in just about any way shape or form by those who have a stake in something corrupt?

    There is no replacement for good old fashioned police work.

    Given the fact that NYS is want to release private information (complete lists of pistol permit holders), I would not want to be on the list of people who turned someone in to get the cash when that gets released...
