Online/Mobile App Tips
Tipsters now have the option of sending us tips online or through our mobile P3 Tips app. The process is completely secure and anonymous; it is a very effective and efficient means of safely communicating with us. A benefit to using our online or mobile app tip form is the option to complete a form in 21 different languages. Our WebTip and mobile app process is powered by the world's leading online tip solution provider, Anderson Software.
The integrated Two-Way Dialog capabilities allow the tipster to provide additional information to their tip after submission at any time while also providing a secure means for the coordinator to ask questions or provide reward information back to the tipster.
Structure and Funding of Crime Stoppers
Crime Stopper Programs are organized as a not for profit organization (Charity). A civilian, community board of directors provides guidance over the financial and promotional activities of the program. The board of directors enhances community involvement; its function is vital to the success of the program.
The Crime Stoppers program is funded by private donations and fundraising. The reward money paid out by the program is from the fundraising and donations provided by concerned citizens and businesses.
The community board of directors meets regularly to discuss Crime Stopper-related news and events, evaluate arrests, and decide on the amount of rewards to be paid. Rewards are then distributed in a private manner to the callers. Callers are eligible for rewards up to $1,000. However, many callers choose not to collect their rewards.
