THE TIPLINE PROGRAM
Our TIPLINE program has been used by many companies, from large corporations like Rite-Aid, 711, McDonald’s, Wawa and Citizens Bank to mom-and-pop stores. Our program works so well because of the anonymity of the callers, and is enhanced by cash rewards offered in most instances. We operate the Tipline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with live, trained operators. We don’t use answering machines or voicemail, ever. When you call the Tipline, you can rest assured that you will talk to a live person, not a machine with a hundred options. You will never get a busy signal. Our operators are trained to help YOU!
HOW REWARDS ARE FUNDED? Many times, a victim’s family and/or friends will post reward money. In other instances, a company or community group will help out.
If a tip is received and the information was not previously given, or can add to the case, the caller will receive a seven digit code number and may qualify for a reward if one is posted on that particular crime. If a caller’s tip is acted upon and results in an arrest and conviction, a Crime Commission representative will meet with the caller, and provide the cash reward, no questions asked. No names or identification is required, just the code number furnished by the Tipline operator. The Tipline has paid out over $800,000 since its inception, and has proven itself over and over again to be a valuable tool in fighting crime.

The Crimefighters series has been credited with hundreds of arrests and for averting countless tragedies.

CAMPUS CRIMEBUSTERS PROGRAM (School TIPLINE)
A person with a tip calls the TIPLINE, and is given a code number. The principal or his designee is contacted by the Crime Commission with the information for his investigation and action. Of course, if an emergency response is necessary, the local police will be notified first. When an arrest and/or disciplinary action results from the information furnished, the person calling in the tip may be eligible for a cash reward. No names are asked, and no information concerning the caller is released to anyone.
