Put simply it is a three part approach to solving the crime problem. Crime Stoppers relies on cooperation between the police, the media, and the general community to provide a flow of information about crime and criminals.
THE PHONE CALL
Calls are received at the local Crime Stoppers tips line phone. This phone is a stand alone instrument which does not provide caller ID, and conversations are not recorded. The Crime Stoppers Coordinator receiving the information completes the tips information form, makes initial inquiries and then passes the information to the investigating law enforcement officer. Calls are accepted regarding any publicized request for information, such as "Crime of the Week" or such other crime(s) the caller has knowledge of.
By guaranteeing a caller's anonymity, Crime Stoppers allows the caller to give information in a positive atmosphere without the prospect of retribution. By offering cash rewards for information leading to indictment or arrests, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information.
THE ONLINE TIP
1) Since you have made it to this page you can submit a tip right here!
2) Once info is submitted, you will get a code. Keep this safe and do not share or lose!
You won't be able to log back on without it and we can't give it to you if you call us.
3) You will be able to submit photos, videos, and text info to our investigators from the
very beginning. They will be able to text questions to you! But don't worry, we will
NEVER KNOW who you are!
4) If an arrest is made based on your info, you are eligible for a reward. We will text you
when we have that information. But remember, the arrest has to be base on your
specific details. If you are working with an investigator, it's a good idea to add that in
the body of your tip.
THE CELL PHONE
Depending on your particular cell phone's options, you are able to text a tip by accessing P3tips.com on your PC or downloading the P3 app to your phone. Again, it's TOTALLY anonymous and we will never know who you are.
