How It Works!

1. If you are aware of a crime in Albany or surrounding areas, call the 24-hour tip line at 229-436-TIPS (8477).

2. Give the operator the tip without revealing your name. In return, the operator will give you a confidential reference number.

3. Call back in a few weeks to check the status of your tip by providing your confidential reference number. If your tip leads to an arrest you will be told where to pick up your cash.

Who We Are

Albany Crime Stoppers is a local non-profit community action program that operates on the information given by anonymous citizens. The goal of the program is to collect tips that will result in solving crimes and assist in arrests. Concerned citizens have the opportunity to call the Albany Crime Stoppers 24-hour hotline at 229-436-TIPS (8477), and report a confidential tip to the operator.


This program is comprised of a board of local volunteers concerned about the safety of this community. Additional support comes from our partners at the local media, law enforcement agencies, and, most of all, local citizens.

Success Stories:

- Numerous arrests and convictions have been made in many areas including armed robbery, aggravated assault, gang activity, robbery by force, probation violations, home invasion and homicide.
- Another tip led to the arrest of a person charged with burglary, kidnapping, aggravated stalking and obstruction of justice. This arrest prevented a homicide from occurring.
- One caller who provided a helpful tip that led to the arrest of a person with over 12 warrants refused a reward and said “I just want to help clean up the streets”.
