Sometimes the difference between life and death may be as simple as a phone call by one concerned friend or relative, and a new Bloomington Police Department program is attempting to facilitate those calls through an anonymous tip line.

The COVER Program is intended to serve as “one central spot to report two different types of behaviors,” according to Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts.
