Calls are received at the local Crime Stoppers tips line. This phone is a stand alone instrument which does not provide caller ID, and conversations are not recorded. The Crime Stopper Police Coordinator receiving the information completes the tip information form, makes initial inquiries and then passes the information to the campus/patrol officer.
By guaranteeing a caller's anonymity Crime Stoppers allows the caller to give information in a positive, anonymous atmosphere without the prospect of retribution. By offering cash rewards for information leading to arrests, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information.
