ABOUT PAYMENT AND THE WAY THE TIPSTER STAY ANONYMOUS-
As long as the published ways to report a tip or website address instructions are used, tips are passed through a software program that masks all sender information. A randomized report number is assigned to each tip so the tipster’s identity is never known to Crime Stoppers or any law enforcement officer/investigator involved in the case.
When Tipsters communicate with Crime Stoppers, following the initial tip submission, whether to provide additional information, check the status of the investigation, or learn if a reward has been authorized, they must use the report number assigned to their tip. Because the process is anonymous, the report number is the only way for Crime Stoppers to locate the tip and provide an update to the Tipster. YOU MUST PROVIDE THE ASSIGNED NUMBER TO CHECK BACK FOR REWARD PAYMENT.
Calls and tips are anonymous!
If the tip information provided leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender, or the recovery or seizure of stolen property or illegal narcotics, the Crime Stoppers Board of Directors may authorize a reward.
Crime Stoppers programs are private, non-profit organizations that assist law enforcement but are not part of law enforcement. As long as the tipster uses the published Crime Stoppers tipline telephone number or website address instructions, neither Crime Stoppers nor any law enforcement officer/investigator will know the tipster’s identity. Anonymity is not Crime Stoppers’ promise -- it is the law. In Texas, a person, including a law enforcement officer,may commit a crime if they intentionally or knowingly divulge the identity of a Crime Stoppers Tipster. To further ensure a tipster’s identity is never known, Crime Stoppers pays rewards only for anonymous tips; tipsters who identify themselves are not eligible for payment.
Tips are accepted regarding any crime or wanted person, whether publicized by Crime Stoppers or not. In-progress crimes and emergencies should be reported to law enforcement (dial 9-1-1 for emergencies).
