WHAT IS THE PROCESS - HOW DOES CRIMESTOPPERS WORK?
HOW IS MY EMAIL OR CALL IDENTITY PROTECTED?
Both Online Crime Stopper TIPS and Callers to a Crime Stopper TIPS line, do not give their name. They are assigned an unique report number which is then used in all subsequent contacts. The phone does NOT have Caller ID, and your call is NOT recorded.
