You can call Crime Stoppers any time, about any type of crime.

Maybe you saw someone committing a crime.

Did you overhear someone bragging about a crime they committed?

You may know someone who is hiding from the police because he or she has a warrant on them or they are a deadbeat parent.

We want to know about: burglaries, robberies, drug deals, vandalism, violent acts or threats of violence; any crime serious in nature. Also if you know about a crime that is about to be committed.

So, the first step is to make the call to Crime Stoppers of York County toll-free tip line at 1-877-409-4321 or send an email tip

You can call 24-hours a day, seven days a week.


The call is not recorded or traced, does not use caller-id and you do not have to give your name. Or you can use the anonymous email tips on this website.

The operator taking your call will need as much information as possible about the crime, or person you are calling about. Be prepared to provide as much information as you can about the suspect’s name and description, where the crime happened, where the suspect is, and so forth.

The Crime Stoppers operator will give you a unique code number to identify your tip, write this number down, this number is the only way to get paid if your tip is successful. If using the anonymous web tips on this website, you will receive a unique tip number when you submit your tip; again keep this number, this is how you get paid.


You don't have to worry about your name being revealed in the case. We never tell anyone the person's name who tipped us off.  Not the judge.  Not the jury.  Nobody.
