Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers Van

The Crime Stoppers program offers cash rewards of up to $1000 to persons providing anonymous information that leads to the arrest of criminals and fugitives. Information is received through anonymous Crime Stoppers tips on a secure tips line or through a secure web connection manned by a professional program coordinator. Each caller is assigned a code number for the purpose of ensuring anonymity.

Crime Stoppers now utilizes SMS text message technology that allows tips to be sent through your cell phone anonymously.

Simply begin your text message with our agency ID (Tip 499). "Tip 499" is then followed by your tip. Then send your message to CRIMES (274637). After sending your tip, you will receive a confirmation in seconds. The return message will contain your tipster alias. You can add additional information at anytime using the same cell phone.

In summary, text Tip499 plus your message to 274637. You will then be given a tipster alias so you can remain anonymous. This allows for anonymous two way communication.
