Learn how Crime Stoppers works and how you can earn extra cash.
How does Crime Stoppers work?
Since 1988 the Carroll County Crime Stoppers has been making a positive impact on crime in our area. As the result of tips from anonymous callers, Crime Stoppers has assisted local law enforcement in the arrest of numerous felons; has paid out thousands of dollars in cash rewards and has assisted in the recovery of thousands of dollars in narcotics and stolen property. With the assistance of local media, Crime Stoppers has become well known in Carroll County.
Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards of up to $1,000.00 to persons who provide information which results in a felony arrest of the apprehension of a fugitive. You don't have to give your name.
The following is a list of the most commonly asked questions about Crime Stoppers.
Who answers the Crime Stoppers tip line?
Highly trained dispatchers at the Carroll County Sheriff's Department answer the Crime Stoppers tip line, 244-STOP (244-7867).
Is the Crime Stoppers tip line recorded?
No, the tip line is not recorded and it can not be traced. Your call is completely anonymous.
What is done with the information once it is given to the dispatcher?
Your information is given to the law enforcement agency, which has jurisdiction where the crime occurred. Additionally, all drug information is forwarded to the Blackhawk Area Task Force. Those answering the tip line do not investigate the crimes, they just pass the information on.
If you don't know my name, how do I get paid?
When you call in with information, a short report is written and you are given a code number. If your information leads to a felony arrest, you can claim your reward by supplying that number.
How much money do I get and when do I get paid?
The Carroll County Crime Stoppers Board and president meet every other month and discuss each case to determine the reward amount. There is no set guidelines which determine the amount for a given crime. Once the board agrees on a payment a reward is issued. The caller calls back at a prearranged date and time and arrangements are made to give their code number and receive their reward - no questions asked. Occasionally a meeting would be arranged at some public place where the exchange would be made. The caller must remember the code number.
How is Crime Stoppers funded?
Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization. The board is made up of concerned citizens who work hard to raise funds. Donations are received from communities, businesses and individuals. Additionally, the law allows a Crime Stopper assessment to be made by the court on those individuals convicted of crimes.
