Crime StoppersCrime Stoppers of Michigan empowers people to make their neighborhoods, schools and businesses safer through anonymous reporting of crime. The Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line was created for citizens in Oakland, Macomb, Livingston, St. Clair, Monroe, Wayne, and Washtenaw counties, who have witnessed or heard about a crime, but are too afraid to call the police out of fear of retaliation. As an incentive, anonymous tipsters can receive a cash reward of up to $1,000 if there's an arrest based on their information. Last year, more than 4000 tips were called in, leading to over 400 arrests. Call 1-800-CRIMESTOPPERS or visit
