Call Procedure :
- A crime is committed and you know who is responsible – We’re interested in receiving tips on any crime, whether featured in the media or not.
- Call the confidential and fully-bilingual TIPS line at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) to provide an anonymous tip. Cell phone users can reach our operators by dialing these easy to remember numbers from their wireless device: Bell Mobility™ and Telus customers dial *8477 from your cell phone. Rogers™ Wireless customers dial #8477 from your device. Submit Online: Confidential Web Tip Information System. Or give us information anonymously by texting ‘TIP212 and your information’ to CRIMES (274637).
- Your information will be taken in strict confidence. Your anonymity is guaranteed. You never have to give your name, or have to testify in court.
- You will be issued a confidential code number. You must keep this number a secret to ensure anonymity; the number is your only means of identification.
- You will be asked to call back periodically so you can be updated on your tip. Be sure to refer to your confidential code number when calling.
- If your tip leads to the successful conclusion of a case, or results in someone being arrested or charged, you become eligible for a cash award if desired.
- You are instructed on how to receive your award.
- See our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information on the process
Crime Stoppers is not an emergency service, and if you see a crime taking place,
you should dial 9-1-1 to report it immediately.
Every call is valuable to Crime Stoppers, but if your information leads to an arrest and charge or successful conclusion of a case, it could bring you a cash award. Awards are set according to the seriousness of the crime and are paid in a way that continues to protect your identity and anonymity.
Who can call to submit an anonymous tip?
Anyone who knows something about a crime can submit a tip. You may know the person involved, have overheard something you shouldn’t, seen something and don’t know what to do. Whatever the case may be, you know something about a crime or a criminal, so tell us what you know, not who you are. It does not have to be part of an ongoing investigation or a crime we are featuring. Know something? Submit a tip online.
THE CRIME STOPPERS PROMISE OF ANONYMITY:
WHAT TIPSTERS NEED TO KNOW
By providing information that Crime Stoppers will share with law enforcement agencies, you are providing an important and valuable public service. We understand that disclosure of your identity might put you at risk. We do everything we can to protect your anonymity. However, that anonymity may be open to challenge in the following situations:
- A call to Crime Stoppers made with the intention of “furthering criminal activity or interfering with the administration of justice”. A party who is guilty of a crime cannot use Crime Stoppers to try to divert the blame onto someone else. Crime Stoppers cannot be used to try to “frame” an innocent person.
- There is evidence that disclosure of some or all of a tip is necessary to establish someone’s innocence.
- A tipster having received the benefit of full legal advice may, for his or her own reasons, elect to waive the privilege.
