NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Crime tips are a vital element in the country’s ongoing fight against crime, but for many, the fear of identification and targeted retaliation stops them from sharing critical pieces of information. But how does sharing a tip with Crime Stoppers work?

The Royal Bahamas Police Force’s partnership with The Miami division Crime Stopper unit hopes to quell public’s fears of retaliation after reporting details of a crime with the promise of identity protection through being able to provide tips anonymously.

When you call their number, you’re speaking with someone in Miami or Houston. They don’t ask for any personal information and scrub anything that might identify you before passing the tip on to law enforcement.

As an example of how far Crime Stoppers will go to protect a tipsters identity, former executive director, Richard Masten, made news in 2014 when he opted to eat a paper containing information about an anonymous tip instead of handing it to a judge in court.

Last year, Miami Crime Stoppers got 59 tips from The Bahamas. We’re at 39 tips so far for this year, and the organization says they hope to see double that number by the end of 2024.
