6/1/2016 - New App for Submitting Tips

Sioux Empire Crime Stoppers is excited to announce that the public can now submit their anonymous tips through the free mobile app called P3 Tips. This new feature, available for both Apple and Android, now offers no length limitations while also providing the ability for users to share images, videos and content that will anonymously get passed along to the Sioux Falls Police Department.

Tips will no longer be accepted through SMS text messages as this program replaces that option. Tips will continue to be accepted by phone (605-367-7007 or 877-367-7007)and this website (click here). The P3 Tips software sophisticated encryption processes obscure any and all identifying information and provides assured anonymity for tipsters.

The Texas-based company that offers the secure P3 Tips service, Anderson Software, leads the industry with its latest secure and anonymous tip acquisition and management solution, called P3 Intel.


Using whichever method, once a person submits a tip, they will be given a TIP ID and password. With this information they can login at p3tips.com and submit follow-up information, engage in real-time chat/two-way dialogue, be informed of the outcome of the tip, and access any pertinent reward information.


Sioux Empire Crime Stoppers feels that utilizing this new service will enhance communications with the public, thereby building a safer and more trusting community in which everyone prospers. To further show our value of tipsters’ contribution to the community, tips leading to an arrest will result in a cash reward.
