CRIME STOPPERS ANNOUNCES NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR SUBMITTING TIPS
October 24, 2017
CRIME STOPPERS OF THE QUAD CITIES PARTNERS WITH ANDERSON SOFTWARE TO COUNTER CRIME AND BUILD A STRONGER COMMUNITY.
New technology optimizes the tip submission experience and effectiveness.
Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities is proud to announce that they have recently partnered with the Texas-based company, Anderson Software, to provide a more seamless and efficient way for community members to offer information to help solve and prevent crimes or other serious or life threatening matters. Anderson Software leads the industry with its latest secure and anonymous tip acquisition and management solution, called P3 Intel. This partnership allows the Quad Cities area to foster a relationship between law enforcement and the public to proactively create a safer community.
Tips were previously accepted as SMS text messages using a short code and a dedicated keyword. Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities will now be accepting tips by phone, the web, and by way of the new, FREE P3 Tips mobile app available on the iOS and Android platforms, greatly enhancing the mobile tip submission process. Still completely anonymous, tips submitted through the P3 mobile app, unlike SMS text tips, have no length limitations and allow images, video, and documents to be uploaded with the tip. Anderson Software’s sophisticated encryption processes obscure any and all identifying information and provide assured anonymity for tipsters.
Even without the app, there is still an easy and secure option for submitting tips from any PC or mobile browser by going to qccrimestoppers.com. Of course, tips are still welcomed through calling our hotline 309-762-9500. Using whichever method, once a person submits a tip, they will be given a TIP ID and password. With this information they can login at qccrimestoppers.com and submit follow-up information, engage in real-time chat/two-way dialogue, be informed of the outcome of the tip, and access any pertinent reward information.
Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities feels that utilizing Anderson Software’s P3 Tips program will enhance communications with the public, thereby building a safer and more trusting community in which everyone prospers. To further show our value of tipsters’ contribution to the community, tips leading to an arrest will result in a cash reward.

154 golfers joined us September 11, 2017 at Pinnacle Country Club, Milan, for a 911 tribute including bagpipes, taps, color guard and flyover. It was a perfect day for golf and fun. The golf included prizes for longest putt, longest drive, closest to the pin as well as a Sexton Ford win a car hole in one challenge. Local JDC Pro Kurt Slattery offered to tee off on hole one for each team in exchange for a donation to Crime Stoppers. Many took him up on the offer! Trophies were awarded for First, Second, Third and Last place. Many supported Crime Stoppers by buying 50/50 raffle tickets, raffle prize tickets, and silent auction items. Golfers enjoyed a Tyson/Pinnacle burger bar and lots of delicious sides for dinner.
Over $17,000 was raised and will be used to pay anonymous tipsters whose information leads to the solving of a felony crime or arrest of a felony fugitive.
