Champaign County Crime Stoppers encourages the public to assist local law enforcement in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.

Champaign County Crime Stoppers provides three main ways for tipsters to anonymously give helpful information to local law enforcement. If your tip leads to an arrest, you could receive up to a $1,000 cash reward. 

To be eligible, and to protect the tipster's anonymity, tips MUST be submitted via one of the following ways:

Call our call center at 217-373-TIPS.  This professional call center is operated by civilians (not law enforcement) and are specially trained to take crime stoppers tips.  Information will be anonymously relayed to local law enforcement for investigation.
Submit a web tip on this webpage (click Give a Tip icon at top left of this page. Complete the form and send it in. All tips are reviewed by trained professionals at our call center then relayed to local law enforcement for investigation.

NOTE-Tips received via email, social media, reported directly to 9-1-1, police, etc., will NOT be accepted, processed, or eligible for a reward from Crime Stoppers.

When you contact Crime Stoppers, you are not contacting law enforcement. We do not record phone calls or using any tracking schemes. Sophisticated technology is employed to ensure your identity will never be known to anyone.

With the public's help, local law enforcement can get the criminals off the streets and make our community a safer place to live.

You will remain completely ANONYMOUS and neither Crime Stoppers nor the police will ever know your identity. We don't want your name, just any information to help solve local crimes and put criminals behind bars.   

Champaign County Crime Stoppers relies on a community volunteer board of directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the program.
