About Crime Stoppers
Local Crime Stoppers programs are non-profit organizations led by citizens against crime. Some Crime Stoppers programs offer cash rewards of up to $1,000 to persons providing anonymous information that leads to the felony arrest of criminals and fugitives. Information is received through anonymous Crime Stoppers tips that are received through a secure tips line or through a secure web connection handled by our professional staff or a program coordinator. Each caller is assigned a code number for the purpose of ensuring anonymity. Crime Stoppers is based on the principal that someone other than the criminal has information that can solve a crime and was created to combat the three major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information:
- Fear of REPRISAL
- An attitude of APATHY
- Reluctance to get INVOLVED
Crime Stoppers resolves these problems by offering ANONYMITY to people who provide information about crimes and paying rewards when the information supplied leads to arrest. Millions of dollars of stolen property has been recovered, millions of dollars in drugs have been taken off the streets and hundreds of thousands of arrests have been made since 1976.
Since 1954, Northern Communication Services has been offering call answer services.
In the course of running our business we use thousands of telephone numbers from various locations and multiple suppliers. Through our department Northern911 we offer 911 call routing. In this type of environment we can’t afford any outage and have created a high availability redundant telephone system that is backed up in multiple ways. Should our system fail, we have a backup. Should we have a major problem in our area we have a complete back up system in a geographically separate city to cover off in the event of a major weather event, a hazmat experience our primary site being burned or flooded. Your calls are important and we will continue to serve you.
We now offer access to this superior telephony platform to you.
We have created special software to accommodate Crime Stoppers requirements.
The caller MUST remain anonymous!
We strip the Caller ID and shred it so that it is not retrievable. Any calls that our Call Takers handle are kept confidential. Tips are created in such a way that the caller’s identity is never at risk. We say “the caller” rather than “he said” or “she said” to further hide the identity of the caller.
We never record the audio of a Crime Stoppers call.
Because of our unique relationship with Crime Stoppers we have created a “Specialty” Crime Stoppers Phone Service.
We offer to route the national (800) 222-TIPS line to the local boards.
We can offer to host the toll free numbers for boards that use another toll free number and provide the same level of anonymity.
We can offer to provide local numbers for boards and again provide the same level on anonymity.
And we can provide this “Specialty” service at a discounted rate.
