Crime Line


 Crime Line and Crime Solvers programs exist internationally with high success rates. Since 1982, Crime Line in Hampton Roads has recovered more than $27 million in stolen property and illegal drugs. Its success can be further measured by the fact that 97% of those arrested through Crime Line tips are convicted.

Crime Line is NOT a police program. Crime Line and Crime Solvers are funded entirely by private donations from concerned citizens and businesses. Volunteer citizen boards administer the program, raise funds and approve and pay rewards to "tipsters."

Crime Line Goals

The primary goal of all Crime Line projects is to generate calls from citizens to ultimately solve crimes. The end result is a safer community. Crime Line is a formula that works, but not if we are unable to deliver that message and pay the rewards.  For almost three decades, the public has come to trust Crime Line, as proven by the hundreds of tips that come into its regional phone bank (1-888-LOCK-U-UP) every month.
