CJ104 Crime of the Week
What happens when you contact Crime Stoppers?
Do you have information on a criminal activity that has occurred or about to happen? Are you concerned about retaliation, being recognized by others or the possibility of having your name associated with a crime? If you wish to remain completely anonymous and not worry about testifying in court or making a statement to law enforcement, contact Crime Stoppers with your information. When you contact Crime Stoppers you will be immediately provided a tipster number which is your only identification and this number is used by you when you call back to receive instructions on how to receive your cash award. The information you provide on a criminal act will be forwarded to a law enforcement agency for investigation who report back to the tip-line operator. Never share your tipster number with anyone or let anybody know you contacted Crime Stoppers.
