I have information about a crime I believe has occurred or I know the whereabouts of someone wanted for a crime. What should I do?
For any crime in progress, call 911. Provide an exact location when possible, and then details of the crime including, if possible, a description of suspects and victims involved. If you have information about a violent felony crime or know the whereabouts of someone wanted for a crime, you are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS, (Se habla espanol: 1-888-57-PISTA). Callers remain anonymous. If your information leads to the arrest and indictment of a perpetrator for a violent felony crime, you are eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
