How it Works

Put simply it is a three part approach to solving the crime problem. Crime Stoppers relies on cooperation between the police, the media, and the general community to provide a flow of information about crime and criminals.

The TIP

We receive tips through calls to our Crime Stoppers call center.  Caller ID information is scrubbed off and conversations are never recorded.  You can also use the free "P3 TIPS" smart phone app or use the "Leave a Tip" button on the left side of this web site.

The Investigation

 The Crime Stoppers police coordinator receiving the information, makes initial inquiries and then passes the information to the investigating officer. Calls are accepted regarding any publicized request for information, such as "Crime of the Week" or such other crime(s) the caller has knowledge of.

The Pay-off

By guaranteeing a caller`s anonymity Crime Stoppers allows the caller to give information in a positive atmosphere without the prospect of retribution. By offering cash rewards for information leading to indictment or arrests, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information.  We work with several financial institutions and other means to pay an anonymous CASH reward for information that leads to an arrest.

The Online WebTip

Tipsters 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 capabilties 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.

The Smart Phone Tip

I-Phone and Android users can get a free app from the I-Phone App Store or the Android Market called P3 Tips.  The app uses a form similar to the Web Tip section of this website but because it works on your smart phone, tipsters can also submit pictures, videos, or even their GPS coordinates if you are at the crime scene or a location where the person of interest frequents. The app self-installs and all you have to do is auto-locate the Northeast Oklahoma Crime Stoppers program, sign in, and create your password.

 

Crime Stopper Programs are organized as a not for profit organization (Charity). A civilian community board of directors provides direction as to the financial and promotional activities of the program. The board of directors enhances the community involvement aspect, and its function is vital to the programs success.

The Crime Stoppers program is funded by private donations and fund raising. NO TAX DOLLARS are involved. The reward money paid out by the program is from the fund raising and donations from concerned citizens and businesses.

A community board of directors, made up of persons from throughout the area, meets on a monthly basis to evaluate arrests and to decide on the size of rewards to be paid, up to $1,000. Rewards are then distributed in a private manner to the callers. Callers are eligible for rewards up to $1,000, but, despite this, many callers choose not to collect their rewards.
