Jackson County Crime Stoppers relies on cooperation between law enforcement, the media, and the general community to provide a flow of information about crime and criminals. Below is an explanation on how tips are submitted.
The WebTip has very unique integrated Two-Way Dialog capabilities which allows the tipster to provide additional information to their tip at any time if wanted, but also provides a secure means for the coordinator to ask questions or provide reward information back to the tipster through the same encrypted interface. Again you do not have to provide any of your personal or contact information.
Crime Stoppers is definitely here to stay. It has been accepted by police as a valid and effective investigative tool and the public, through its overwhelming response, appears to have accepted it as a more palatable alternative to traditional methods of giving information.
