Nassau & Suffolk County Crime Stoppers

 Home »  News »  Crime » Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers is a program that connects local police departments with the public and media to help find suspects and collect information that can lead to arrests. To help spread the word about crimes happening in your area, Crime Stoppers posts photos of offenders on both the Nassau County Crime Stoppers and Suffolk County Crime Stoppers websites. Photos of suspects who committed recent crimes are posted on each site, as well as photos of Long Island’s Most Wanted criminals who have not yet been caught. By donating tips, time, and media space, the public and media have made the community a safer place by leading police to make over 500 arrests in Nassau County alone.

Crime Stoppers benefits both the caller and the community, as callers who provide tips are kept anonymous and can even earn money for their assistance if it leads to an arrest. In Nassau County, those who call Crime Stoppers can receive a cash reward of up to $5,000 for tips that lead to the arrest of an offender, as can those who provide a tip to the Suffolk County Crime Stoppers.

Nassau County’s Crime Stoppers can be reached at 1-800-244-TIPS (8477). Those with tips can also submit them online through the Confidential Web Tip Information System.

Suffolk County’s Crime Stoppers can be reached at 1-800-220-TIPS (8477). Suffolk also offers an online tip submission site and texting tip submissions. If you have a tip and would prefer to text, text “SCPD” to “CRIMES” (274637).

You can also contact your local police precinct by calling their direct phone number.
