How Does it Work?

You can call 517-483 STOP (7867) at any time. The phone line is manned daily from 8 am to 5 pm. An answering machine message allows you to leave information after hours, but you should call back to be assigned a Tip Number code during business hours. If the information is an emergency or time sensitive, call 911 or the appropriate police agency first, and then call Crime Stoppers. Give all the detailed information you can about the crime and the suspects. You do not have to give your name and Crime Stoppers does not utilize caller ID.


Crime Stoppers receives the information and gives the caller a confidential code number. Citizen Witnesses are identified by Tip Numbers, not names. Crime Stoppers asks the caller to call back in a few weeks for an update on their file and passes the tip to law enforcement for investigation.


If the tip results in an arrest, recovery of stolen property, recovery of illegal narcotics or a combination thereof, the caller can qualify for a reward. The amount of reward will be determined by the board of directors and can range up to One Thousand Dollars ($1000.00).

When Citizen Witnesses call back for an update, Crime Stoppers communicate reward information back to the anonymous caller. A reward paid to the Tip Number code will be arranged upon approval. Rewards are given out by a local bank, not police.


Crime Stoppers of Mid Michigan is managed by a volunteer, unpaid board of directors with law enforcement coordinators in cooperation with Ch 6. All funds raised stay in the Mid Michigan area and are used to improve the safety of our communities.

All donations to Crime Stoppers are tax deductible. Please help us make our community a safer place to work and live. By supporting Crime Stoppers, you can make a difference and be part of the alliance to get felons off the streets.

DO NOT attempt to approach, follow, detain or arrest any individual based on this web site's information. As information becomes dated it may become less accurate. Because some wanted persons are being sought for crimes of violence, or are known to be armed, all wanted persons should be considered dangerous. If you have information regarding the identity or whereabouts of any wanted person immediately contact Crime Stoppers or notify your local law enforcement agency.
