METAIRIE, La. - Crimestoppers said it has new technology that will help in the fight against crime.

During a news conference Tuesday morning, Crimestoppers joined a number of law enforcement agencies to unveil their new 'Tip Submit' app for smart phones.

It allows users to quickly send information about potential crimes and allows them to upload pictures and videos involving a tip.

Crimestoppers said they are also looking at other technology on the horizon to help them take a bite out of crime.

Because the software for the 'Tip Submit' app is encrypted, it allows users to remain anonymous and collect their cash reward.
