Texting Trouble

MPBN broadcast a report yesterday on the new Text-A-Tip Pic program organized by Portland police to get bars to text information to each other and to authorities about unruly customers.

“This information will be exchanged between bars and the police in what is called real time. When this information is forwarded problem person or group can be expected to be denied access and certainly a contact by the police,” Craig said.

The program is expected to include several dozen establishments throughout the Old Port district, and nearby Congress Street.
