       Providing Tip Information Through Crime Stoppers     

 • To qualify for a reward from Crime Stoppers, the information must be submitted to Crime Stoppers of Minnesota through a phone call to our toll free phone number, our web tip form, a text message sent to 274637, or by use of the Submit a Tip mobile App before the person referred to is arrested.
• Crime Stoppers offers a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in any felony case or that helps in the capture of a fugitive.  Our payment of a reward is not limited to just cases highlighted on this website or reported in the media. 
• The actual amount of the reward to be paid is based on variables that consider the usefulness of the tip as reported to us by the arresting authority.  This evaluation is consistently applied by the Board of Directors of Crime Stoppers of Minnesota. 
• Rewards with supplemental amounts that offer more than $1,000 will be calculated using the same method of evalustion unless specifically stated otherwise in the offer of reward.
• Crime Stoppers of Minnesota cannot be responsible for how our offer of a reward is stated by other parties such as in newspapers or in electronic media.
  Notification that a reward is due to the tipster will be made by Crime Stoppers after we receive information from the arresting authority and after the Board of Directors makes its determination.  The ability to collect that reward will remain open for 90 calendar days from the date we send the notification of the actual reward payment after which there is no claim to the amount by the tipster, their agents or heirs.
