How it Works

Crime Stoppers allows any citizen
coming forward with information to
remain completely anonymous. We
don’t need or want witness names.
Citizen Witnesses are assigned a code
number with their tip, and their
information is forwarded to the
appropriate investigating agency.

Crime Stoppers does not use caller
I.D. or record telephone calls.
Through this method, the Citizen
Witness is assured that his/her identity
will be protected and any useful
information will be utilized.
