The Quincy Regional Crime Stoppers are adding a new weapon in their fight against crime, while continuing to keep the identity of the tipster anonymous.  Beginning this week, a new free mobile app will provide citizens with an easier and more efficient way to submit information to help solve and prevent crimes or other serious or life threatening matters. 
Crime Stoppers is partnering with Texas-based Anderson Software to provide the upgrade in technology to better meet the needs of smart phone users.  Anderson Software leads the industry with its latest secure and anonymous tip acquisition and management solution, called P3 Intel.  This partnership allows Quincy Regional Crime Stoppers to foster a relationship between law enforcement and the public to pro-actively create safer communities.

Quincy Regional Crime Stoppers will continue to accept phone tips at their hotline number of 228-4474 and at their website of   Tips will no longer be accepted via SMS text messages. Instead, tips will be accepted through 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 sophistication encryption processes obscure any and all identifying information and provides assured complete anonymity for tipsters.
