Many people including law enforcement officers and citizens alike wonder:
How does Crime Stoppers work?
Can I really get a reward without anyone knowing who I am?
The best way to answer these questions is to lay out our operating procedure for you. Multi-County County Crime Stoppers has two telephone lines set-up for incoming calls. A local administrative/office line and an 800 tip line. There is no caller ID nor line recorder set on these lines. No other law enforcement office nor officer has access to answering these lines. The Crime Stoppers office and files are kept secured and cannot be accessed by anyone other than the Crime Stoppers Coordinator or Assistant. The public has access to the Crime Stoppers Coordinator by telephone or by walk-in. These precautions are necessary to protect the anonymity of the Crime Stoppers caller and the confidentiality of the information as set-up in the Texas Government Code, Code of Criminal Procedure and Texas Penal Code.
