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 WebTip 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.
Other community benefits are:
A greater awareness in the community that there is a crime problem.
A willingness by the community to fight back against crime if it is given the opportunity.
Improved relationships between the community, law enforcement officials, and the media.
The public, through its overwhelming response, has accepted CrimeStoppers as a more palatable alternative to traditional methods of giving information.
