Ways you can help your community
There have always been two overriding reasons why people are reluctant to get involved in a criminal investigation. Fear and apathy. People are afraid of reprisal by individuals involved in criminal activity, and people are reluctant to get involved because they feel their information is insignificant or they can’t be bothered to make that phone call. Well Crime Stoppers has been able to overcome both of those obstacles.
First – To overcome the “fear factor” Crime Stoppers guarantees that all phone calls to the tips line are strictly confidential. Callers are never asked to identify themselves. We do not use call display and conversations are never recorded. Anonymity is guaranteed. Tip information involving the caller is so generic that when it is sent to police for investigation there is no indication in the tip whether the caller is male or female. Callers are never identified but are assigned a confidential code number.
Second – To motivate people to get involved and contact Crime Stoppers we turn to one of the best incentives…money. If you contact Crime Stoppers and your information assists police in solving any crime, leads to an arrest, the recovery of stolen property or illicit drugs you will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.00.
