The Online WebTip
Tipsters now have the option of giving us tips online. 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 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, but 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.
Texting a Tip
Crime Stoppers of Citrus County, Inc., has made it even easier to provide tips to solve crimes. Citizens can now text crime tips from their cell phones -- best of all, anonymity is still guaranteed. Simply download the mobile app for iPhone/Android at WWW.P3tips.com. Our civilian coordinator will receive your tip and, if needed, can immediately start two-way dialog, all while the tipster continues to remain anonymous.
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 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 programs success.
The Crime Stoppers program is funded by the Office of the Attorney General, Crime Stopper Trust Fund and supplemented by private donations and fund raising. NO TAX DOLLARS are involved.
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 $3,000. Rewards are then distributed in a private manner to the callers. Callers are eligible for rewards up to $3,000, but, despite this, many callers choose not to collect their rewards.
