How Tips Work

1. Tipster

Contact Crime Stoppers and leaves an anonymous tip. No identifying information is collected, transmitted, or stored. 

2. Assigned Tip Number

The tipster is then assigned and given a tip number.

3. Double-Check

The tip is scrubbed by the Crime Stopper Coordinator to ensure no identifying information is contained within the tip. 

4. You've Got Mail

The tip narrative is then sent to the law enforcement agency. 

5. Investigation

After the investigation concludes, the agency provides disposition of the tip. 

6. Reward

Crime Stoppers board of directors determines and approves the reward. 

7. Payday

The tipster takes a confidential ID# to use for your reward. 

8. A Safe Community

We all receive the benefit of safety!
