Tips are received at the local Crime Stoppers Tip Line 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), via the internet at www.P3tips.com, or using a Smart Phone application. The tip line uses a stand alone telephone which does not use caller ID, and conversations are not recorded. Web tips and Mobile tips are received by the program only after the originator’s IP address or device identity is removed from the tip.
The Call Taker will ask questions about the suspect and the crime, completes the report, then passes the information to the police for their investigation. Callers are given a report number and encouraged to call or write back if they obtain further details that could assist the police investigation. The more details the tipster can provide about the suspect, the crime, and information to support the allegation, the more the police have to work from. Callers can also call or write back to inquire regarding the status of the investigation. Crime Stoppers takes information on all types of crimes including but not limited to driving offenses, illicit drugs, Elder abuse, theft, assault, mischief, homicide, fraud and more.
