This post was originally published on this site

Since its inception in 1982, Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities has received more than 16,000 tips resulting in more than 3,000 arrests and more than 3,500 solved cases. 

As a result, $333,715 has been paid in reward money.

This year alone, Crime Stoppers has received 503 tips resulting in 36 arrests, 54 cases solved and $4,400 in reward money.

And now they are making it easier than ever to submit tips.

Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities announced Tuesday that they have partnered with Texas-based 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. 

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. 

It remains completely anonymous, but 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 encryption processes obscure any and all identifying information and provide assured anonymity for tipsters.

Even without the app, the public can still submitt tips by going to qccrimestoppers.com or calling 309-762-9500. Once a person submits a tip, they will be given a tip ID and password. This allows you to log in at qccrimestoppers.com and submit follow-up information, engage in real-time chat, be informed of the outcome of the tip and access any reward information.

  1. Tottenham cemented their place as the Premier League’s comeback kings at Swansea. It was the fourth time that Spurs have been behind in a game with five minutes to go and gone on to win. Tottenham’s comeback at Swansea was only the 20th time in Premier League history a side has won having trailed with five minutes to go… can you remember the others?

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
