A launch is held for Capital Region Crime Stoppers, a nonprofit program that allows people to submit anonoymous tips and information to local law enforcement.
In some cases, there will be a cash reward of up to $1,500 if the tip leads to an arrest. The organization is run by a board of directors that works in partnership with local law enforcement at the Albany Police Department's Information Coordination Unit to ensure that the tips provided remain 100% anonymous.
Crime Stoppers relies on private donations and SEFCU has donated $10,000 to the program to fund tip managing software and refunds.
There are several ways for the public to submit the 100% anonymous tips and information to law enforcement:
- You may call the Capital Region Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-(833)-ALB-TIPS
- Submit a tip via www.capitalregioncrimestoppers.com and click "Submit a Tip"
- Download the FREE P3 Tips application to your smart device or cell phone
