HOW DOES CRIME SOLVERS WORK?
Anyone with knowledge of a crime can
call 1-800-346-1466. All callers may remain anonymous
with no pressure to reveal their identifies. The caller
gives a brief summary of what they know. Then, the
call taker assigns the caller a number which is used
in any subsequent calls to CRIME SOLVERS and
when a reward is paid to the caller. If the information
results in an arrest and indictment, a reward of up
to $1,000 is paid to the caller.
A CRIME SOLVERS Board of Directors,
comprised of up to 21 members of the community, oversees
the operation of the program and approves the reward
to be paid. The Board of Directors makes the determination
of the reward amount, which is based upon recommendation
of the coordinators.
