Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers is a cooperative effort between law enforcement agencies in Santa Clara County, local media, and a volunteer board of directors. Our program operates a 24-hour telephone line (408) 947-STOP (7867), a website (svcrimestopers.org), and the P3Tips app for the community to report crime tips anonymously. Our program allows citizens with information about serious crimes to report without giving their name or personal information. Crime tips resulting in an arrest of suspects entitle the caller (identified by a code number given to them) to a cash reward. Community members are urged to call (408) 947–STOP or submit their crime tips using P3Tips if they have information on a serious crime. Rewards up to $1,000 are offered for information leading to an arrest.
