Wood County Crime Stoppers introduces P3, the next generation in crime fighting in Wood County. Beginning in April 2018, Wood County Crime Stoppers will be transitioning from Text-a-Tip to a new platform called P3.
Citizens can download P3 for free to any smart phone or device. P3 allows real time information to get to law enforcement right away so that we can act on your tip more quickly and efficiently. Users can also upload photos of suspects and videos of crimes.
Just search for P3 Tips in the App store or Google Play, enter a code that you choose, sign in and then select your location. Once a tipster submits the information, the App will give a TIP ID and a Password for logging into the tip at any time. If your tip is chosen to receive a reward, the tipster then chooses a 'PIN #' that is used along with the TIP ID when collecting their cash reward.
Tipsters can still call the Wood County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-877-325-STOP if they wish to speak to an operator. P3 Tips, however, allows citizens to submit the information quickly and privately, and their identity is never compromised.
The great thing about P3 Tips is now everybody can be a crime fighter.
The Marshfield Police Department, Wood County Crime Stoppers, and the Marshfield Area Coalition for Youth have created the "Texting Tip Line". The texting tip line gives children and adults the ability to text in tips of possible alcohol, drug, and criminal violations while remaining completely anonymous and being eligible for a cash reward.
Just dial 274637 (CRIMES) and begin your text message with the key word WCCS. There is the potential of receiving a reward if the information proves credible and results in a successful investigation or arrest.
Wood County Crime Stoppers has also created a page through Facebook. Please "Like" Crime Stoppers and refer back to get the latest news and to assist law enforcement in identifying suspects of various crimes.
