Here’s how the process works: A person contacts Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(T. Remember, Crime Stoppers does not tape or trace calls or subscribe to any form of call identifier.
To assist the investigators, please keep your story clear and concise, including where, when, why, how and what.
During the call the tipster is given a confidential number which is what they will use whenever they call to update the police coordinator’s office. You will never have to give your name or testify in court and you may be eligible for a cash reward.
The onus is on the tipster to re-contact Crime Stoppers. Crime Stoppers does not have call display or caller ID.
If the case was solved by the tipster, once an arrest has been made and charges are laid the tipster qualifies for a cash award.
An envelope with cash is passed over to the tipster.
