Crime Stoppers is
a valuable tool for law enforcement.
It creates an avenue for the public to assist officers with solving
crimes while remaining anonymous.
Many times individuals want to help, but they are afraid someone
will know they provided information that led to the arrest; however, there
is nothing to worry about. When
an individual calls the Crime Stoppers telephone number, the information is
taken and forwarded to the appropriate law enforcement agency. After the information is received, a
Tip Number is given to the caller.
The Tip Number is how the caller is identified, NOT by name. If the case is solved AND an arrest
is made, the caller should call Crime Stoppers and request their reward.
