How it Works

Put simply it is a three part approach to solving the crime problem. Crime Stoppers relies on cooperation between the police, the media, and the general community to provide a flow of information about crime and criminals.


Calls are received at the local Crime Stoppers tips line phone. This phone is a stand alone instrument which does not provide caller ID, and conversations are not recorded. The Crime Stoppers Coordinator receiving the information completes the tips information form, makes initial inquiries and then passes the information to the investigating law enforcement officer. Calls are accepted regarding any publicized request for information, such as "Crime of the Week" or such other crime(s) the caller has knowledge of.
By guaranteeing a caller`s anonymity, Crime Stoppers allows the caller to give information in a positive atmosphere without the prospect of retribution. By offering cash rewards for information leading to indictment or arrests, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information.

                                               THE ONLINE TIP

Tipsters now have the option of giving us tips online. The process is completely secure and anonymous and is a very effective and efficient means of safely communicating with us in today's world.
The very unique integrated Two-Way Dialog capabilties allow the tipster to come back and provide additional information to their tip at any time. The texting feature allows the tipster, the coordinator, and investigators the chance to ask questions while making the tipster feel secure in the process. This feature also allows the tipster to submit a photo or video. This has proven to be a great help to law enforcement.

Depending on your particular cell phone's options, you are able to text a tip . However, some websites do not have this feature. 

You can also access the internet at w
ww.texascrimestoppers.com for a listing of all the Texas Crime Stoppers agencies in Texas and find one for your particular county where the suspect is located.

After your tip has been submitted, whether it's by submitting the tip information on this website or by calling 1-800-460-2222, you will need to contact the coordinator to check the status of your tip as well as find out the information as to when and where you can pick up your reward.

 If you DO NOT live in this area, you "NEED TO INFORM" the coordinator what area you live in (just the area, not a specific address) so they can contact the closest  crime stoppers agency and arrange for the reward payment. The preliminary information will help keep you from having to travel unecessary miles when it's time to get your reward money.


                                   DOES CRIME STOPPERS WORK ?

The answer is quite simply, yes. Since the start of Crime Stoppers, many calls have been received resulting in thousands of arrests and recovery of substantial amounts of property. Calls have included information about murder, robbery, rape, assaults, drug and firearm offenses.

The success of a Crime Stoppers program cannot be purely judged on statistics, however, other benefits have come to notice:

  • A greater awareness in the community that there is a crime problem.
  • A willingness by the community to fight back against crime if it is given the opportunity and motivation.
  • Improved relationships between police, media, and the community.

Crime Stoppers is definitely here to stay. It has been accepted by law enforcement as a valid and effective investigative tool and the public, through its overwhelming response, appears to have accepted it as a more palatable alternative to traditional methods of giving information.
