Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week

November 12, 2018 - December 9, 2018

Hey everyone, I’m Madeline Elliott and I am the Student Council President at Chapman High School.  Today I want to decipher truths and myths behind anonymously texting a crime tip.  Many people do not know this but I once made an anonymous crime tip through Crime Stoppers and my identity remained and still is a complete secret.  They never asked for my name, never recorded my cell phone number, but I still did my part in letting the authorities know of a crime I knew someone had committed.  If you know of a crime that happened to you or your friend, you should do your part in making sure that the same crime doesn’t happen to others.

One thing a lot of people don’t realize is that their tip could lead to a reward if police arrest that person so not only are you helping society and remaining anonymous, but you are also receiving cash or some other reward for what you are doing.  You won’t ever be considered a “snitch” because no one will know it was you but you have your conscience completely cleared.

 To submit a tip please call Crime Stoppers of Dickinson County toll free at 1-888-5DK-Tips (1-888-535-8477).

You can also submit your tip using the free P3 Tips mobile app or via the web at

 If we all work together, we can reduce crime and increase safety in our area for all.
