CRIME STOPPERS OF WICHITA/SEDGWICK COUNTY INTRODUCES NEW MOBILE APP
New technology optimizes the tip submission experience and effectiveness.
Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County, Kansas is proud to announce that they have recently partnered with the Texas-based company, Anderson Software, to provide a more seamless and efficient way for community members to offer information to help solve and prevent crimes. Anderson Software leads the industry with its latest secure and anonymous tip acquisition and management solution, called P3 Intel. This partnership allows Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County to foster a relationship between law enforcement and the public to proactively create a safer community.
Tips previously accepted as SMS text messages using a short code and dedicated keyword will be discontinued. The new software will allow submission of 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. 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 sophisticated 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 http://www.wichitasedgwickcountycrimestoppers.com and clicking the “submit a tip” icon. Of course, tips are still welcomed through calling our hotline (316) 267-2111. 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.
Wichita/Sedgwick County Crime Stoppers feels that utilizing Anderson Software’s 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, tips leading to an arrest will result in a cash reward.
