Crime Stoppers

Crime Stopper's goal is to provide a safe, anonymous, and dependable way to report crimes on campuses in order to help reduce crime and provide a safe and secure learning environment for the students of Kennedale ISD.

Anonymity

Crime Stoppers tipsters are 100% anonymous. Often, those who witness a crime, see or hear suspicious behavior or talk, or suspect someone of wrongdoing won’t reach out in fear of “being involved” in a crime, of retaliation, or having to appear in court. The Crime Stoppers system is set up to be 100% anonymous and confidential, giving every citizen the safety and freedom to make their community a better place to live.

What is a Crime Stoppers Tip?

Crime Stoppers accept tips for information about unsolved crimes, wanted fugitives, narcotics, weapon possession, hit & runs, missing persons, robberies, and other felony offenses. Only tips received through the Crime Stoppers hotline, website, text message, live chat, or mobile app are eligible for Crime Stoppers rewards.

What is not considered a tip?

The Crime Stoppers program is not a substitute for the 9-1-1 emergency system. In the event of an emergency, tipsters are encouraged to call the 9-1-1 emergency system immediately! The Crime Stoppers reward system is intended to be anonymous, where there is no face-to-face communication.

Collecting a Reward

Crime Stoppers offer rewards to those persons who provide crime-solving tips directly to Crime Stoppers in an anonymous manner. Those who do not comply with this condition of reward offers are not legally entitled to receive a Crime Stoppers reward. Crime Stoppers cannot promise to keep an informant’s identity a secret if Crime Stoppers have seen the informant face-to-face or if the informant has given her/his name to Crime Stoppers because the informant is only “confidential”, not “anonymous".

How do I know if I am eligible to receive a reward?

Please contact the Crime Stoppers hotline, 817-469-TIPS (8477), to update your tip information or to check the status of your reward. Please have your tip number ready as no information will be provided to you without it. The Call Center will let you know if an arrest has been made and a reward is available or the status of the investigation.

How do I collect my reward?

After you check the status of your tip and verify that you are eligible to receive a reward, the Call Center will provide you with instructions for collecting your reward from the bank. You will not need to provide personal identification to the bank; you will be receiving cash.
