Welcome to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound

Did you know that in the state of Washington, a personal crime* happens every 5.1 minutes? And a property crime** happens every 1.6 minutes?

Clearly, crime has touched and affected every single one of us. Many people feel helpless. But at Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound, we’re doing something about it. Join us to help make our communities safer!

About Our Organization

Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime in King, Snohomish, Kitsap, Island, and Whatcom counties.

A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound is devoted to working with the public toward the common goals of reducing crime as well as arresting and convicting criminals and fugitives. Learn more about us.

How Our Program Works

The Crime Stoppers program is one of the most successful and cost-effective crime fighting tools available in the law enforcement arsenal. The community provides anonymous tips by using the P3Tips mobile phone app, by visiting our site, or by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound never asks for the tipster’s name, and it’s this anonymity that enables people to offer a tip without the fear of retaliation. With every tip, hundreds of hours of investigators’ time are saved, allowing crimes to be solved faster. Learn more about how it works.

How You Can Help

The incentive for supplying tips is more than just helping the police and keeping our community safe. We offer a cash reward of up to $1,000 for any information leading to an arrest and charges.

Our pool of money to supply tipster rewards is driven entirely by donations. Learn more about donating.
