How Does it Work?
WeTip hotlines are answered by bilingual tip operators 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All calls are anonymous, not just confidential. No one will ever know who made the call. The operator will then ask a series of questions, designed by law enforcement, to obtain the maximum amount of information about the reported crime. After the information is taken, a code name and number are assigned to the informant. The caller always remains absolutely anonymous.
The WeTip operator will take the information and pass it on to appropriate law officers who then conduct their own investigation. Only calls made directly to WeTip will be eligible for reward. If your information results in an arrest and conviction, you will be given up to $1,000.00 cash, depending upon the importance of the crime solved. Your identity will never be known to anyone. The reward drop is made at a secret postal location, using the assigned code names and case numbers. No personal contact is ever made with the informant.
