Crimestoppers is a proven, effective method of helping law enforcement authorities bring criminals to justice. Nationwide, the conviction rate for arrests made with the assistance of Crimestopper tips is more than 98%. It works because citizens provide the police with information that can lead to the arrest and conviction of crime offenders.
There are two important aspects of this unique program. First, it provides an incentive for people with the information to come forth by offering cash rewards. In addition, Crimestoppers protects their safety by assuring the complete anonymity of anyone who submits a tip.

This number is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is designated for Crimestoppers information only. All calls are kept in complete confidence. Anonymous tips can also be submitted by downloading the FREE P3 Tips App on your mobile device or online electronically.
