1. Text “TIPLA” plus your message” to CRIMES (274637)
2. Upon reception of a tipster’s first incoming message, the system will auto-reply with a confirmation containing their unique Tip ID.
3. To submit follow-up information, the tipster simply replies. Nothing else is needed.
4. All follow-up tips and even your replies from the application are written under the original parent record and shown threaded and date/time stamped in the narrative. The session may be terminated by the tipster texting STOP into the system at any time or by you manually selecting the “Terminate Thread” button from within the application.
Anonymous Telephone Call:
Calls are received at a Call Center using a toll free number: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
All phone lines are encrypted and no phone calls are ever recorded. Tips are then sent onto LA Crime Stoppers for further evaluation.
By guaranteeing a caller’s anonymity, Crime Stoppers allows the caller to provide information without fear of retaliation. By offering cash rewards for information that leads to an arrest or criminal filing, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information.
