Crime Stoppers Raises Reward for Felony Crimes
Updated On: Nov 02, 2014


DATE:  January 30, 2014

FROM:  Det. Kevin Boehm, Crime Stoppers Coordinator

SUBJECT: Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline Raises Maximum Reward Amount

KANSAS CITY, MO --- The Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline today announced the organization’s advisory board has voted to increase the maximum amount of rewards it pays from up to $1,000 to up to $2,000.

“Since our inception in 1982, our reward policy has been to pay ‘up to $1,000.00’ for anonymous information on felony crimes that lead to an arrest by a law enforcement agency,”  said Coordinator Det. Kevin Boehm.  Crime Stoppers is a division of the non-profit Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission which has been in existence since 1949.

“Considering we are in our 32nd year of offering $1,000.00 cash rewards and similar sized Crime Stoppers programs are paying higher rewards, we felt the time had come to increase our potential payouts.”

This new reward amount becomes eligible on February 1, 2014.  TIPS received prior to this date are still eligible for up to $1,000.00.  The new amount also does not affect existing “Supplement Rewards” established prior to February 1, 2014.  The “Supplemental Reward” program involves cases where additional funds have been added to specific cases by individuals or business thereby increasing the reward above the maximum offered by Crime Stoppers.   

Crime Stoppers is available 24/7 and anonymous information can be submitted via phone (816-474-8477), text (text TIP452 and your information to 274637 which spells out “CRIMES”) or on-line at

In order to claim their reward, tipsters must remain anonymous and keep and protect the individual secret “code number” they receive when they first report their TIP.  Crime Stoppers uses that number to identify the tipster since tipsters are always anonymous.  Rewards are paid based only on the “code number” and not by any other method of identification.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers Greater Kansas City TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477), TIPS may also be submitted electronically at, or by texting TIP452 and your information to 274637 (CRIMES).  Information leading to an arrest in the case could be eligible for up to $2,000.00 in reward money.  ALL INFORMATION IS ANONYMOUS.
