We need your help to solve crimes in our community! 

Crime Stoppers provides a safe and anonymous way for all citizens to help fight crime by passing on information to law enforcement agencies. Tipsters can report information about any illegal activity, wanted person or missing person not just crimes featured on our website or social media. Crime Stoppers does not investigate tips. Crime Stoppers only acts as the mechanism for a tipster to anonymously report this information to the police.

We do not want to know who you are – we just want to know what you know. Crime Stoppers doesn’t want to know the tipster’s name, phone number or anything about the caller. Everything is done anonymously. When you provide a tip do not provide any personal information that could identify you. 

Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display or record any of our calls. 

All information submitted through our online form is encrypted and we do not have access to your IP Address.

The integrated two-way dialog capabilities of the online reporting form allows Tipsters to come back and provide additional information to their tip at any time, but also provides a secure means for the Crime Stoppers Coordinator to ask questions or provide updates while still keeping the Tipster anonymous.

When you provide information by either calling or online you will be given a code number.  This is the only way we can link you to your tip information.  Since we do not know who you are or have your phone number you will have to check back by calling the phone number above or go back to the online form to receive an update on the status of your tip information.  If your information helps to solve a crime, recover property and/or drugs or results in a resolution you may be eligible for a cash reward.

Crime Stoppers Promise of Anonymity:

By providing information through Crime Stoppers it will be shared with law enforcement agencies.

We understand that the disclosure of your identity could put you at risk. Crime Stoppers will do everything possible to protect your anonymity.  However, your anonymity may be open to challenge in the following situations:

  • Should it be determined a call to Crime Stoppers is made with the intention of “furthering criminal activity or interfering with the administration of justice”.  A party who is guilty of a crime cannot use Crime Stoppers to try to divert the blame onto someone else. Crime Stoppers cannot be used to try to “frame” an innocent person.

  • Should there be evidence that disclosure of some or all of a tip would establish someone’s innocence.

  • Should a Tipster who has received the benefit of full legal advice may, for his or her own reasons, choose to waive their privilege of anonymity.
