Raleigh CrimeStoppers - A Non Profit Organization
HOW DOES RALEIGH CRIMESTOPPERS WORK?
Raleigh CrimeStoppers work with the police, the media, and the community to create a confidential flow of information about crime and criminals. At the heart of CrimeStoppers are the anonymous tips, often provided by a confidential online tip or phone call.
The Anonymous Tip
Help Solve Crimes
Tipsters call the CrimeStoppers tips line and speak with a CrimeStoppers coordinator. This line does not provide caller ID, and conversations are not recorded. Information gleaned from the call is given to an investigating officer. Tips received can include responses to requests for information publicized by the media or other crimes the caller knows about.
By guaranteeing anonymity, CrimeStoppers allows tipsters to give information without the threat of retribution. Offering cash rewards for information leading to arrests encourages tipsters to provide information.
