New app to allow anonymous tips via mobile phones to Crime Stoppers

DUNN CO., Wis. (WEAU) -- Those with information about crimes will soon be able to use their smartphones to send anonymous tips to the Dunn County Crime Stoppers.

Dunn County says iPhones and Android devices will be able to send tips to the Crime Stoppers which will replace the existing “TIPP-DUNN” text on August 29.

The existing toll free number (1-855-tipp-dunn) and web based (dunncocrimestoppers.com) will remain the same.

The new service, called P3 Tips, will allow users to provide photographs and videos to the program and will have an unlimited messaging length. The service will be utilized using a custom App from a mobile phone.

The app will be available through the Apple store or Android market.

The county says P3 Tips will allow agencies and community members to have two-way secure and anonymous interactions.

However, the county does say the service is only for reporting crime tips not for reporting crimes in progress.
