Calls are received at the local Crime Stoppers tips line phone number at 559-498-STOP. This phone is a stand alone instrument which does not provide caller ID, and conversations are not recorded. The Crime Stoppers police or civilian Coordinators receiving the information completes the tips information form, makes initial inquiries and then passes the information to the investigating officer. Calls are accepted regarding any publicized request for information, such as "Most Wanted" or such other crime(s) the caller has knowledge of.
By guaranteeing a caller's anonymity, Crime Stoppers allows the caller to give information in a positive atmosphere without the prospect of retribution. By offering cash rewards for information leading to indictment or arrests, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information. CA State law protects any person leaving a tip on any of the Crime Stopper tip applications to full ANONYMITY. No one can know who you are.
