On November 26, 2019 Devoski Ray Wagner, Director Law Enforcement Relations and Chief Danny Jackson of the Union Springs Police Department signed a "Memorandum of Understanding" which gives a detailed description of the agreement between the Central Alabama Crime Stoppers and the Union Springs Police Department.
Chief Jackson provides further information about the procedure for callers to Crime Stoppers.
"Citizens are encouraged to assist the Union Springs Police Department and other law enforcement agencies by using the Crime Stoppers tip line (1-833-AL1-STOP).
"To upload any photos or videos, people reporting crimes may upload to http://www.P3tips.com.
Citizens may volunteer crucial information to assist law enforcement in the fight against criminal activity. Callers may remain anonymous.
"After calling the tip line, an operator will take the information about any given crime while never asking the name or other identifying information about the caller.
"Once the information is provided to the operator, the caller is assigned a code number or password which is used to keep track of the status of the information.
"When the caller calls back with the code number or password and finds their information was useful in solving a crime and a reward was offered, the caller receives the cash reward.
"The reward recipient will be instructed to go to a bank in a specified location to get the cash paid out to them."
