THE INVESTIGATIVE AGENCY
Crime Stoppers creates a report based on the information provided by the tipster, and passes the information on to the police and/or the appropriate agency.
A Crime Stoppers tip may start a new investigation or it may support an ongoing investigation. For the investigation to be considered successful the investigative agency must:
* the term "successful conclusion" is used for cases which are closed due to a Crime Stoppers tip but may not include an arrest, laid charge, etc. *
Crime Stoppers strives to provide the community with a proactive program that allows individuals to anonymously assist in solving crime and contributing to an improved quality of life in our district.
All tipsters remain anonymous; we do not subscribe to caller I.D., record calls, or ask for any identifying information. As a tipster you will be provided with a tip number. Each tip received is assigned a new tip number. A Crime Stoppers coordinator or trained staff will ask a series of questions regarding the crime so that a report can be completed.
If the tipster is interested in a reward and/or wants to know the status of their information, they must call Crime Stoppers again and provide the coordinator or trained staff with their original tip number.
THE CASH REWARD
If your tip is successful you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2000. The rewards are determined by the Board of Directors who meet monthly. The Board of Directors calculate the reward individually for each case based on a number of factors including how many arrests or charges resulted from the tip, as well as the value of drugs, weapons and/or other property seized. They also consider the seriousness of the crime and how much detail the tipster provided.
The tipster must call Crime Stoppers with their tip number to receive instructions on how to pick up their reward.
Rewards are distributed through local businesses. The local businesses that assist Crime Stoppers in distributing rewards have received training and will not ask for any identifying information.
* not all eligible tipsters choose to collect their reward. *
