Abilene Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
Abilene Crime Stoppers provides many ways to give a tip. Call 676-TIPS(8477) or 1-800-868-8477, also we provide a secure way to Give Web Tips over the Internet, and you can TEXT your TIPS to "274637" (crimes) via your cell phone, just type tip126 at the start of your text message and then hit send.
Another new way to give a tip. New smart phone App This new software tool is the first anonymous and fully featured crime tipping mobile app for your IPhone. To get your App visit iTunes Store for your free P3 Tips App.
Web tips and Text tips are great tools to use to give anonymous information to crime stoppers. When there is urgency in tip information given to crime stoppers, i.e. a wanted person at a known location at the time of the tip. Crime stoppers asks, please consider calling our 24/7 hotline: (325) 676-TIPS (8477). You are still anonymous, and the urgency of your tip information can be communicated to the call taker and then to the appropriate Law Enforcement Agency. Delay of web tips or text tips can be due to the time of day the tip was given, or lag time in receiving the tip information via the Internet. This can prevent the tip being acted on in a timely manner. Therefore; calling our hotline can help to ensure a more appropriate response for these types of tips.
As always you will remain anonymous we want your information not your name.
We encourage citizens in our community to give vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies in their fight against crime.
Tipsters will remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward up to $1000.00 if the information given leads to an arrest and charges filed on the person or persons responsible for any unsolved felony crime.
