TIPS HAVE BEEN
Anytime, day or night, Anderson County citizens can call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-888-CRIME-SC (274-6372) to provide any tips they would like to contribute to ongoing criminal investigations.
Crime Stoppers is a statewide program dedicated to receiving and disseminating information to law enforcement agencies, all while allowing the source to remain anonymous. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Each tipster is issued a unique confidential tip code number that allows him or her to remain anonymous. Should a tip lead to an arrest or major development in an investigation, the providing tipster will be eligible to receive a cash reward as compensation.
(Reward amounts will vary based on each individual case as determined by the state committee overseeing the program.)
