The Burlington Police Department has adopted a new service to receive and track Crimestoppers tips. You can still call (336) 229-7100 to submit a tip, but now you can also do so using the P3 Tip app. This app will allow us to better facilitate reviewing and using the tips we receive. Do not worry, it is still completely anonymous! But now you will be able to keep track of the tips you have submitted, view our most wanted, help ID, and other important criminal activity pages, and see if you will receive a cash reward for your tip. So download the app in the Google Play Store or the App Store, you will be asked to create a four (4) character minimum password, and then you're ready to go.
Please visit the Alamance County Crimestoppers website to view the Crime of the Week, Unsolved Crimes, Wanted Persons, and Unsolved Homicides. You can view these pages there and submit tips directly on each case or person's page. This will make it easier for us to review your tip and investigate it if applicable.
Crimestoppers is a program that involves the public, the media, and the police in the fight against crime. It offers anonymity and cash rewards to persons who furnish information leading to the arrest of suspects. Each week facts about unsolved felony crimes are aired on radio, TV, in various newspapers, and circulated to enforcement agencies throughout the area. Citizens are asked to call Crimestoppers with any information regarding the crimes.
It is completely anonymous!
All calls are kept in complete confidence. Citizens who supply information which leads to an arrest are eligible for a reward valued up to $2,500.00. The Crimestoppers Board determines the amount of the reward. The department also has a Campus Crimestoppers Program designed to provide students a way to anonymously report crimes that may occur on their campus and a Gunstoppers program to get illegal firearms off the street.
Crimestoppers has introduced a new program called Gunstoppers. Citizens can report illegal firearms to Gunstoppers with the possibility for a cash reward. A majority of violent crimes that occur involve an illegal weapons, so we hope to reduce these crimes by getting these weapons off the street.
