Please note, Web Tip and SMS Text Tip submissions are not currently monitored 24/7 like the phone service. If your tip is about an "in-progress" suspicious activity, please use the Crime Stoppers hotline or telephone number. If you have information about an emergency situation, please dial 911.


A board of volunteer citizens oversees the Crime Stoppers Program and approves the rewards to be paid. However, the caller's identity, nor tip detail, is not revealed to the board. Callers eligible to receive a reward may call the Crime Stoppers hotline and provide their code number. Please allow 2-4 weeks from the time of your initial tip for investigation, processing, and determination of reward eligibility. When you call to check on your tip status, if you are eligible for a reward a time and place will be set up for the caller to receive their reward without anyone knowing their identity.
Who Benefits
Everyone in the Riley County area benefits from the program, except the criminals. The community benefits by having citizens involved; crimes are solved; property is recovered and drugs are confiscated, thus making the community a safer place for everyone. The law enforcement agencies benefit through enhanced community policing.
