Leon Harden, Jr., was a member of the Crime Commission board as well as serving as Chair of our SAFE program. He was also a member of the Second Chance board and was a past board member of our MCSP program. He died unexpectedly on June 24th at the age of 69.
Leon was a retired executive with AT&T where he played an instrumental role in improving the efficiency of the area’s 9-1-1 system and was a great friend to law enforcement. A quiet man who shunned the spotlight, he will be remembered for his commitment to this community. After his retirement, he established Harden Consulting, a public safety consulting firm.
The Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline is proud to announce the introduction of new anonymous reporting software and mobile app to provide a more seamless and efficient way for students and community members to offer anonymous information to help solve and prevent crimes or other serious or life threatening matters. We began utilizing P3Tips.com on January 1, 2017 which is linked to our existing website at www.kccrimestoppers.com.
Effective May 23, 2017, TIPS previously accepted as SMS text messages using a short code and a dedicated keyword have been discontinued. The new software allows submission of TIPS by phone, web, and by way of the new, FREE P3 Tips mobile app available on the iOS and Android platforms, greatly enhancing the mobile tip submission process. Still completely anonymous, tips submitted through the P3 mobile app, unlike SMS text tips, have no length limitations and allow images, video, audio and documents to be uploaded with the TIP. The software’s sophisticated encryption processes obscuresany and all identifying information and provides assured anonymity for tipsters. Even without the app, there is still an easy and secure option for submitting TIPS from any PC or mobile browser by going to www.kccrimestoppers.com and clicking on the “give a tip” banner. 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 www.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.
The Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline feels that utilizing this new process will enhance communications with the public, thereby building a safer and more trusting community in which everyone benefits.
