Submit A Tip

The key to the success of Crime Stoppers around the world, and its real foundation, is our guarantee of anonymity.

There are now four ways to Submit A Tip including the new iPhone app.  They are:

By Phone: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)

To ensure the anonymity of tipsters, they are given a code number. Once the “TIPS” information is evaluated, a police investigator is given the information to act upon. If the information is of value and results in an arrest, the seizure of narcotics or stolen property, or the solving of a criminal case, then the details of the crime are brought to the Awards Committee of the Board for an award decision.


Clicking on link above will take you to a secure Tip Submit site, which will open in a new page. Then with a few clicks of the mouse you can enter your tip information into a form.

Just like call the TIPS line, the online process is completely anonymous.
