88-CRIME assists local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by providing an anonymous, toll-free hotline for reporting
Overcoming the two biggest impediments to community involvement --- fear and apathy --- the program encourages members of the public to
report information that can help law enforcement officers solve crimes and arrest criminals.
88-CRIME provides three ways to submit an anonymous tip:
by calling 882-7463
; by submitting information
; or by sending a
text message to 274637
(enter Tip259, plus message).
88-CRIME also accepts collect calls. Tipsters are not asked for their names, and the information provided is never recorded, preserved, or traced.
Since this program of the Pima County Attorney’s Office began in 1980, tips to 88-CRIME have been responsible for more than 4,978
felony arrests and more than 121 million dollars in recovered stolen property and seized illegal drugs. Thanks to the anonymous tips from callers, 88-CRIME has
helped take a host of murderers, child molesters, armed robbers, burglars and drug dealers off our streets.
A person may be eligible to receive a cash reward if information provided to 88-CRIME leads to the arrest and indictment of a felony offender.
The program has already given out more than $1,357,475 in rewards since its inception.
