Is Crime Stoppers Really Anonymous?
ABSOLUTELY! The Crime Stoppers TIPS LINE does not record calls nor does it have Caller ID. When someone calls with information, they can be completely confident that they will NOT be identified. Each caller is given a code number after giving their tip and it will enable the caller to stay in touch with Crime Stoppers to monitor any results of their information.
The Internal Revenue Service made a law exempting Crime Stoppers programs from having to collect personal information on information given on tipsters in order to collect their rewards.
How are Cash Rewards Paid?
Area citizens have volunteered their time and formed a board of directors to oversee the Crime Stoppers program. This board approves the rewards to be paid, based on information about the case presented by the Law Enforcement Coordinator.
Once the board approves a reward and the caller has called back to check on the case, the Coordinator will give the called instructions on how to pick up the reward.
The caller is given secret code information and directed to a local bank. The caller will give the bank teller the code number and after the number has been verified by the teller, the caller will receive an envelope containing the cash reward money.
How Can I Help
Crime Stoppers is committed to solving crimes, tracking down dangerous fugitives, and making our community safer. To do this, we need the support of our citizens and the business community we serve.
Our Crime Stoppers program is part of the North Carolina Crime Stoppers Association and a 501.c.3 non-profit organization. As such, it depends upon fundraising events and donations to be able to continue performing its essential work for the community.
