The “tipster” does not give her/his name. All tips are anonymous. Computers assign a tip number to the “tipster”. Appropriate law enforcement agencies receive the information and investigate the information submitted by the callers.
As a “tipster”, you are given a confidential tip number. Use this number to check on the status of your information. If your information results in an arrest or filing of criminal charges, arrangements are made for you to receive your reward in CASH and preserve your anonymity.
Once you have a tip number, you should check back monthly to see if your information qualifies for a reward. You MUST have the tip number to receive information or to be paid. Save your tip number! We don't have a way of giving it to you again!
