The Online Web Tip and Mobile Tip
Tipsters now have the option of giving us tips online and/or through the use of their smart phone by downloading the mobile app at the link above. The process is completely secure and anonymous and is a very effective and efficient means of safely communicating with us in today's world. Our Web Tip and Mobile Tip process is powered by the world's leading online tip solution provider, Anderson Software.
The very unique integrated Two-Way Dialog capabilities allow the tipster to come back and provide additional information to their tip at any time and allows them to request updates by utilizing a separate follow up button. This initial Two-Way Dialog also provides a secure means for the coordinator to ask questions or provide reward information back to the tipster through the same secure and encrypted interface.
Structure and Funding of Crime Stoppers
Crime Stopper Programs are organized as a not for profit organization (501©3 charitable organization). A civilian community board of directors provides direction as to the financial and promotional activities of the program. The board of directors enhances the community involvement aspect, and its function is vital to the program’s success.
The Crime Stoppers program is funded by private donations and fund raising. NO TAX DOLLARS are involved. The reward money paid out by the program is from the fund raising and donations from concerned citizens and businesses. [See our Support Us button for YOUR TAX DEDUCTIBLE GIFT CONTRIBUTION ]
A community board of directors, made up of persons from throughout the area, meets on a monthly basis to evaluate arrests and to decide on the size of rewards to be paid, up to $1,000. Rewards are then distributed in a private manner to the callers. Callers are eligible for rewards up to $1,000, but, despite this, many callers choose not to collect their rewards. All rewards will expire one year from the date that they are approved by the Crime Stoppers Board of Directors.
