WeTip is a service that allows residents to report crime anonymously and confidentially, and without fear of retaliation. There are no machines, no taping and no tracking your call. WeTip is a completely safe way to report information you know, such as a crime, threat, suspicion or incident.

WeTip is a non-profit 510 (C)(3) organization that was founded in 1972 to help aid law enforcement and to provide an anonymous crime reporting resource to citizens. It’s toll-free hotlines operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Anonymity is of the utmost importance to WeTip. When you call to report a crime, nobody will know who you are and there is no way to find out. WeTip has no taping, tracing, caller ID or call logs.

Once WeTip receives the tip information, it is passed on to the appropriate law enforcement agency, which takes action based on the tip information and then reports back to WeTip on whether or not it led to an arrest and conviction. According to WeTip, the organization has helped law enforcement with 1,296,537 tips, 16,336 arrests and 8,372 convictions.

WeTip also offers cash rewards to callers who report crimes that lead to an arrest and conviction. Reward amounts vary.

To submit an anonymous tip to WeTip, call 1-800-78-CRIME. For more information, visit wetip.com.
