How It Works

If someone feels that they have information on ANY crime, they can call Crime Stoppers at 800-TIPS (8477) at anytime of day, 365 days a year.

When you call Crime Stoppers, a trained tele-operator will answer the call and take the relevant information. The caller or tipster will NEVER be asked to reveal his or her name, where he or she is calling from or any other personal information. Additionally, the telephone system which is used by the Crime Stoppers Unit, is not equipped with Caller ID, Call Waiting, Voice Mail or any other such device.
Your call can never be traced. If you are calling from a cellular prepaid phone and your card is depleted your call will still be received by Crime Stoppers.

After receiving the information, the tele-operator provides the tipster with a Control Number which must be kept confidential.

The tipster is asked to call back within 21 days to track the status of the case and to find out whether he or she is eligible for a cash reward payment up to $10,000.

Once the Tipster is eligible for a cash reward and the Control Number is provided, the Tele Operator gives details of how the reward should be collected

It is the responsibility of the Crime Stoppers Police Co-ordinator to disseminate all the information collected by the unit to the relevant Heads of Police Stations / Divisions and investigating officers. He continuously checks with these personnel to determine the status of the investigations based on the tips that have been provided.
