Rewards for Tips
Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that lead to the arrest, the seizure of stolen property or illegal narcotics. The program offers citizens an anonymous method for providing vital information about crime to police without fear of retaliation and assists law enforcement with the clearance of crimes.
Citizens now have several ways to contact Crime Stoppers:
- By Phone: Callers can remain anonymous by calling our unrecorded phone number at 336-476-8477 to provide tips about crime in and around the Thomasville area. A secret code will be assigned that may be used later by the caller to collect a reward based on the fruitfulness of the tip
- Online: Simply fill out the Web Tip Information Form to submit a tip online
Crime Stoppers of Thomasville will soon be available via mobile App! You will soon be able to offer tips via our new mobile application. You will be able to download the P3 App from your Apple or Google App store.
If the information leads to an arrest, seizure of drugs or stolen property, the caller becomes eligible for a reward. Their case is presented at the next monthly Board of Director's meeting. The Board decides what reward is appropriate, based on the usefulness of the information.
