CrimeStoppers is offering cash rewards for tips identifying and/or assisting in locating possible suspects of crimes observed on video surveillance.
Closed-circuit television (CCTV), known as video surveillance, assists law enforcement clear several crimes every day. There are some instances, however, when identifying the possible suspect and/or suspect vehicle in the video may be difficult. CrimeStoppers is committed to partnering with the community to assist law enforcement in clearing these cases. As a collaborative effort between local law enforcement and CrimeStoppers, agencies are providing CrimeStoppers with video surveillance and/or photos of possible suspects and/or suspect vehicles which CrimeStoppers will post to our website. Citizens are encouraged to visit the page – www.875tips.com/alert – to view these videos and photos. If identification is made in any case, the citizen should anonymously report the tip to CrimeStoppers at (573) 875-TIPS (8477).
If the information provided assists law enforcement in making an arrest in the case, the tipster is eligible for a cash reward. Tipsters will be required to call CrimeStoppers back and provide the CrimeStoppers reference number provided at the time you give the tip. During that call, payment will be arranged. CrimeStoppers does not call back or return phone calls to arrange payment. Further, CrimeStoppers does not require a conviction to pay out rewards.
Despite the collaboration with law enforcement agencies to make this possible, it is important to remember that CrimeStoppers is not directly affiliated with law enforcement. CrimeStoppers is an independent, non-profit community service organization created to aid in the fight against crime in our community. All information submitted through CrimeStoppers remains completely anonymous.
All of us – CrimeStoppers, law enforcement, and all citizens in this community – are on mission to fight crime and keep our community safe. Let’s do just that – one ID at a time.
