Choose from 3 Ways to Submit a Tip

If you have any information about a crime, use one of the methods below to contact Waterloo Crime Stoppers.  You will not have to provide your name, phone number or location.

Crime Stoppers will not take tips from victims. If you are a victim of a crime, please report directly to Waterloo Regional Police Services at 519-653-7700, or, in the case of an emergency or a crime in progress, call 911.

CALL US AT 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to "Call Display", or "Call Trace", and we do not record phone conversations. When you call, you will be given a confidential code number. This is the only way we can link you to your tip information. Depending on the information and crime, you will be asked to call back at certain intervals to obtain an update on your information. Since we do not know you, or your phone number, it will be up to you to call us.

Waterloo Regional Crime Stoppers has a secure website link to submit your tip online. Your information will be encrypted and forwarded to our Head Office.
If you use this method to provide us with criminal information, you may call the above number at a later date for an update, or continue to use webtips to ask for an update.

Send your message to “CRIMES” (274637), and have “TIP152” at the beginning of the body of the message. Your messages are secure and anonymous.

Tipsters can submit anonymous tips via text message (SMS - Short Message Service) from cell phones. The Crime Stoppers program receives only the content of the text message and a Tipster ID assigned by Anderson Software. Crime Stoppers will be able to reply back to you without knowing your phone number.
