Calls are received at a Call Center using a local number: 972-436-TIPS (8477). All phone lines are encrypted, and no phone calls are ever recorded. Tips are then sent to the Coppell Police Department for further evaluation. 

By guaranteeing a caller's anonymity, Crime Stoppers allows the caller to provide information without fear of retaliation. By offering cash rewards for information leading to an arrest or criminal filing, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information.
