Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers is a cooperative effort between the police departments of Silicon Valley, local media, and a Board of Directors comprised of local citizens. Crime Stoppers operates a 24-hour telephone line, (408) 947-STOP (7867), for citizens to report crimes or criminal activity anonymously.
This program allows citizens with information about serious crime to report it without giving their name. Tips resulting in an arrest of suspects entitle the caller (identified by a code number given to them) to a cash reward. Citizens are urged to call (408) 947 – STOP if they have information on any other serious crime. Rewards up to $1,000 are offered for information leading to an arrest.
