OC Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers is a service that allows citizens to anonymously report potential criminal activity and or supply information regarding suspects of crimes. Tips that lead to an arrest are subject to a reward of up to $1,000.

How it Works

Orange County Crime Stoppers allows people to report crime tip information by phone, web, or text. For web and text tips, the system provides the ability to have a two-way SMS dialog through an encrypted code if desired. No IP information can be obtained through this code. The phone call is answered 24/7, on an unrecorded line.

How to Use it

  • Via phone call to 855-TIP-OCCS (855-847-6227).
  • Via text to CRIMES (274637), in the message body type keyword OCCS, then a space.
