ANNUAL ENCORE CONCERT FUNDRAISING EVENT (2017/11/15)
Marathon County Crime Stoppers would like to thank you for your support for our first annual Encore Concert fundraiser, held in July of 2017. Now is the time to save the date for our next concert event, which will be held the evening of August 18th, 2018 at the beautiful Grand Theater in downtown Wausau. Remember it's 8-18 -18!!
Additional details for the concert event will be posted as they are confirmed. The concert event will be a great family fun time, but if you can’t make it, tickets can be transferred to another or we can donate the tickets back into the community.
The public will be contacted via phone by Encore Productions, (starting approximately March of 2018) who will explain how to donate and receive concert tickets. If you are not called by Encore, you may also contact a Crime Stoppers Board Member to obtain tickets.
Representatives from Crime Stoppers are available to answer any questions you might have regarding the Crime Stoppers organization, how your donation is used or to simply verify the legitimacy of the phone solicitation. You may contact our Crime Stoppers Law Enforcement Coordinator, Detective Kelly Hanousek at 715-261-1423, or any Board of Director Member.
There are many levels of support to choose from.
Please help us to Stop, Solve and Prevent Crime in our community.

NEW REPORTING OPTION (2017/02/23)
P3 Tips Mobile App. Marathon County Crime Stoppers is pleased to announce that we have 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 P3Tips mobile app. This new App replaces the text message option previously available to tipsters in our community. Crime Stoppers continues to accept tips via the web and by phone as well.
Still completely anonymous, tips submitted through the P3Tips 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 P3Tips 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.
Crime Stoppers went LIVE with P3 Intel February 27, 2017.
