Tip411 Mobile App
The Benton Harbor Department of Public Safety is increasing its crime-fighting arsenal with an innovative new phone app to help residents better connect with the department in order to share information, view alerts, and submit anonymous tips, all from the convenience of their smartphone.
Citizens should be aware that this service is for activity within the city of Benton Harbor only. Any tips sent must involve information within the City, not to be confused with Benton Township. However, all local citizens are encouraged to get the app.

Benton Harbor Fire Services
We are here to keep our community safe from fire.
We want the public to look to us for fire safety, fire prevention and investigation, smoke detector usage, and information to keep our residents safe.
Great information from award winning organizations:
National Fire Safety Council prevents needless accidents and saves lives by providing us with meaningful fire and burn prevention and life safety educational materials for children, adults, and seniors.
National Child Safety Council provides a wide array of materials that we use in grades K-5 to provide accident prevention education.
To build even greater awareness of our services, we provide firetrucks for special events. To request a firetruck, contact us at (269) 927-8425.
Smoke Alarms Save Lives
American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign – The Home Fire Campaign helps save lives by installing free smoke alarms in homes that don’t have them and by educating people about home fire safety. Every day, seven people die in home fires, most in homes that lack working smoke alarms.
