Isle of Wight County is fortunate to have a very active Crime Line Program that is run and managed by civilian volunteers within the community. The Isle of Wight • Smithfield • Windsor Crime Line Board has made it very easy for the public to provide completely anonymous information regarding crimes that have occurred, reporting undiscovered criminal activity, and the location of wanted persons. If the information you provide leads to apprehension or conviction, you may be eligible for a cash reward. Your identity will remain anonymous and you will not have to testify in court.
To contact crime line with confidential information and possibly receive a cash reward:
