1/1/2017 - MIGRATION TO NEW P3 SOFTWARE AND INTRODUCTION OF MOBILE APP

GREATER KANSAS CITY CRIME STOPPERS

816-474-TIPS HOTLINE

 

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

DATE:           December 29, 2016                           

 

FROM:           Det. Kevin Boehm, Crime Stoppers Coordinator

 

SUBJECT:    GREATER KANSAS CITY CRIME STOPPERS TIPS HOTLINE INTRODUCES NEW MOBILE APP

 

New technology optimizes the tip submission experience and effectiveness.

 

KANSAS CITY, MO --- The Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline is proud to announce the introduction of new anonymous reporting software and mobile app to provide a more seamless and efficient way for students and community members to offer anonymous information to help solve and prevent crimes or other serious or life threatening matters.  For over 34 years the Greater KC Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline has received over 140,000 anonymous TIPS and paid out over $1,364,000.00 dollars in cash rewards for that information.  Effective 1/1/2017 we will begin utilizing P3Tips.com and our existing website at www.kccrimestoppers.com to allow the entire Kansas City metropolitan region currently covered by Crime Stoppers to foster an enhanced relationship between law enforcement, media and the public to proactively create a safer community.

 

  TIPS previously accepted as SMS text messages using a short code and a dedicated keyword will be discontinued.  The new software will allow submission of  TIPS by phone, 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, audio 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 www.kccrimestoppers.com and clicking on the “give a tip” banner. Of course, TIPS are still welcomed through calling our hotline (816-474-8477). 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 www.P3TIPS.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.

 

  The Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline feels that utilizing this new process will enhance communications with the public, thereby building a safer and more trusting community in which everyone benefits. For further information contact:
