All Crime Stoppers tips are handled anonymously, whether taken via phone, web, or mobile app. When an individual calls, a trained call taker will take the information, record it on a form and assign the caller a secret code number. This process will be explained to the caller. The information received will immediately go to local police for action. Besides the standard phone tip (373-TIPS), an individual can also send an anonymous web tip on this website or via our P3 Tips mobile app.
Tips That Impact Schools:
If a tip concerns a school, then the tip is immediately shared with that school. If the school has a School Resource Officer (SRO), that officer will be notified in a timely manner and a decision on whether additional police intervention is needed will be determined at that time. The SRO will inform school administrators when a tip is received. If a school does not have an SRO then the school administrators will be informed by police.
Tip Tracking Procedure:
All tipsters giving information to Crime Stoppers are given a secret code number. This number is used in all subsequent contacts with Crime Stoppers. Crime Stoppers welcomes information about any crime, potential crime, fugitive, or criminal action. Tips leading to an arrest could result in a reward of up to $1,000.
