How Does It Work?
88-CRIME is guided by the best practices of Crime Stoppers USA.
The Pima County Attorney’s Office 88-CRIME tip line takes anonymous tips on serious criminal activity. Your identity is kept anonymous and the crime information is provided to a law enforcement agency for investigation. Provide as much detailed information as possible about the crime and the suspect(s) involved including the suspect’s name, age or date of birth, and address. Videos and images can be attached to mobile and web tips.
IMPORTANT: On rare occasion prosecutors may be legally required to disclose this form to the defendant. If you wish to protect your anonymity you should avoid giving information that is likely to identify you.
If the investigating law enforcement agency notifies 88-CRIME that your tip solved a serious crime or led to a felon’s arrest, then you may be eligible for a reward amount ranging from $50 up to $2,500.
88-CRIME rewards are paid by 88-CRIME, Inc., an affiliated non-profit 501(c)3 corporation, that is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors are volunteers. They determine the policies and procedures for 88-CRIME, Inc. and make the reward decisions. Some of the factors that are taken into consideration when determining a reward amount are the quality, accuracy and completeness of the information; the seriousness of the crime; the number of crimes solved as a result of the information; the monetary value of the crimes committed; and the dangerousness of the suspect to society. The Board of Directors has the final authority to determine the reward amount.
The reward will generally be paid to the first person furnishing sufficient information to the 88-CRIME tip line that leads to the felony arrest or indictment.
88-CRIME, Inc. rewards are valid for 90 days. You are encouraged to stay in contact with the 88-CRIME Program to check the status of your tip and a possible reward determination. If you do not to contact the 88-CRIME Program (520-882-7463) within 90 days from the date the reward was approved by the 88-CRIME Board of Directors, the funds will be classified as unclaimed and the reward payout expires.
A commissioned law enforcement officer and members of his or her immediate family, 88-CRIME Directors and members of their immediate families, the victim of the felony crime and the felon suspect are not eligible for an 88-CRIME reward.
88-CRIME, Inc. is funded by donations and funds raised by the Board of Directors. Tax dollars are not used for rewards.
Supplemental reward amounts (private donations paid by a third-party to make the reward larger than the maximum 88-CRIME, Inc amount) is calculated using the same criteria set by the Board of Directors. Supplemental rewards are subject to change based on an annual agreement.
Only 88-CRIME tips are eligible or considered for an 88-CRIME, Inc. reward. Information given directly to 9-1-1 or a law enforcement agency is not eligible for an 88-CRIME, Inc. reward.
Call 9-1-1 in an emergency. 88-CRIME does not dispatch emergency service responders, does not monitor the tips 24 hours a day, and does not investigate crimes, or take reports from victims.
