Choose from 3 Ways to Submit a Tip

If you have any information about a crime, use one of the methods below to contact Near North Crime Stoppers.  You will not have to provide your name, phone number or location.

Crime Stoppers will not take tips from victims. If you are a victim of a crime, please report directly to your local police service, or, in the case of an emergency or a crime in progress, call 911.

CALL US AT 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to "Call Display", or "Call Trace", and we do not record phone conversations. When you call, you will be given a confidential code number. This is the only way we can link you to your tip information. Depending on the information and crime, you will be asked to call back at certain intervals to obtain an update on your information. Since we do not know you, or your phone number, it will be up to you to call us.

Near North Crime Stoppers has a secure website link to submit your tip online. Your information will be encrypted and forwarded to our Head Office.
If you use this method to provide us with criminal information, you may call the above number at a later date for an update, or continue to use webtips to ask for an update.

Tipsters now have the option of texting tips through their cell phone. The process is completely secure and anonymous.

You can terminate the thread by texting STOP into the system at any time or by manually selecting the 'Terminate Thread' button from within the application.
