How does it work?

Most of the information received by Crime Stoppers is by telephone. You may call the Crime Stoppers 24 Hour Hotline at 940-627-8477 or 800-643-8477 if long distance.


When a call is received by Crime Stoppers it is logged with the date, time, and a brief summary of the caller's information. Callers are furnished with a secret code number which is used in subsequent transactions. Callers remain anonymous and still collect their rewards.


If a caller's information results in the arrest and indictment of an offender or the apprehension of a fugitive, the caller will be contacted and arrangements made so the person can receive his/her reward in cash and preserve his anonymity.
