Scholastic Crimestoppers


The Smithville Police Department is included in Greater Kansas City Area Crimestoppers and there are now several ways that you can ANONYMOUSLY report criminal or concerning activity:

  • Crime Stoppers Website
  • Call Crime Stoppers at (816) 474-TIPS (8477)
  • Download the mobile app P3 Tips from the Apple Store or Google Play Store

If you choose to use the P3 Tips App, it’s super easy and user friendly:

  • When you first install it, you will select a passcode.  This allows you to update tips if you have more information after submission
  • Remember, this app is just as secure and anonymous as before, plus it gets routed through actual people who can scrub out identifying information if you accidentally leave it in
  • Select your location, Country, State, City.  Now you have a choice between Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers or Smithville School District.  Choose whichever you feel is appropriate for the information that you have
  • Select the category that your information falls under (assault, drugs, bullying, sexual assault, etc.)
  • Once the category is selected, you simply fill in the blanks with as much information as you have
  • After you submit it, you are given a tip # that you can use to track the disposition of the tip or add more information to it

Regardless of the way that you submit your tip, your information is appreciated! We can only address the issues we know about and realize that people may not always want to come forward.  This allows the information to get to us while keeping citizens who may not want their information known safe. 

If you have any questions regarding the app or how to find it, feel free to give us a call at 816-532-0500.
