How WeTip Anonymous Crime Reporting Works
Report an Anonymous Tip to Police
Call WeTip Hotline: 1-800-78-CRIME
The informant calls the WeTip Hotline. All calls are Anonymous not just "confidential." Confidential means that someone knows your name and promises not to tell, until they are subpoenaed. "Anonymous" means that nobody knows who you are and there is absolutely no way to find out. We have no taping, tracing or caller ID. We have no way of knowing who the caller is.
The very first thing the caller will hear is “this is the WeTip Crime Hotline, do not give your name or identify yourself in any way.” If at any time the caller starts to identify him or herself, the operator will interrupt telling the caller, “I have to disconnect this call, please call back and speak to another operator.” The reason for this is that we absolutely cannot know who is on the other end of the phone line, but we do want the information.
“this is the WeTip Crime Hotline,
do not give your name or identify yourself in any way.”
Anonymous Crime Reporting
Once the anonymity has been established, the operator takes the caller through a series of up to 65 questions. These questions have been developed through the aid of law enforcement and the purpose is to elicit as much information as possible. Many times the caller actually has more information than they realize.
What WeTip Does
To accomplish WeTip’s basic purpose, and to ensure it’s strength, WeTip Operators staff the toll free, nationwide crime hotlines and Internet lines, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The organization will not be restricted by jurisdictional enforcement lines or perimeters. This Crime Reporting Hotline is committed to sending all tip information to every law enforcement agency necessary. WeTip will provide the maximum amount of information possible to law enforcement to enable them to conduct an investigation based on the anonymous information. WeTip answers the crime call anywhere in America for Municipalities, School Districts, Corporations, Small Businesses, Housing Authorities and public and private agencies. WeTip actively and aggressively pursues training any and all entities that utilize WeTip’s resources throughout all mediums available.
The basic purpose of WeTip Inc. is to provide an absolutely anonymous crime reporting resource to residents, students and businesses throughout the entire Nation.
WeTip has been established by citizens and for citizens, who have information regarding a crime but fear reprisal from the criminal they are turning in.
WeTip has been created as an effective tool for law enforcement, not to circumvent law enforcement, but to help Law Enforcement and Corporate Security investigations.
This tool is for the segment of the population that will not contact the law enforcement agency directly.
