P3 Tips Mobile App. Marathon County Crime Stoppers is pleased to announce that we have recently partnered with Anderson Software, to provide a more seamless and efficient way for citizens and students to offer information to help solve and prevent crimes. The new tip management solution, called P3 Intel, provides a FREE, user friendly, Crime Tip App, called P3 Tips mobile app. This new App replaces the text message option previously available to tipsters in our community.
Tips were previously accepted as SMS text messages using a short code and dedicated keyword. Marathon County Crime Stoppers will now be accepting tips by way of the new free P3 Tips mobile app available on the iOS and Android platforms, and will continue to accept tips via the web and by phone.
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 sophistication encryption processes obscure any and all identifying information and provides 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 p3tips.com or marathoncountycrimestoppers.org. Of course, tips are still welcomed through calling our hotline (877-409-8777). 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 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.
Marathon County Crime Stoppers feels that utilizing the 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, tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1000.
