How to submit a tip?
Our site is a work in progress and we are continually revising, updating and adding information.
***If you are aware of a serious unsolved crime that is not currently highlighted on this site, please contact the investigating police agency. All crimes posted on this site are done in consultation with the investigator involved. ***
When a crime is committed, you can provide your tip information the following three ways;
Call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), our toll-free tip line, any time day or night. Crime Stoppers takes information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Crime Stoppers tip line is staffed by trained personnel who receive, process, and pass on tip information to investigating officers.
Calls are not recorded and Crime Stoppers does not have call display, guaranteeing that your identity remains anonymous.
When you call the Crime Stoppers tip line, you are given a tip number. You can add new information to your tip anytime by quoting your tip number. YOU initiate all contact with Crime Stoppers and it is up to you to call back to check on the status of the information you provided (using your tip number).
After 4 – 6 weeks,you can call back to the 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) number during the day, refer to your tip number and you will be updated as to the progress of your tip.Once the investigation is complete, we can tell you the results of your tip and whether you qualify for an award. If your tip leads to the crime being solved, you will qualify for a cash award which can be claimed with your tip number.
