NORTH OLYMPIC CRIME STOPPERS 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
Law Enforcement officers can tell you that most major crimes are solved not by brilliant investigative work, but as a direct result of information provided by the public. Witnesses, however, are often reluctant to provide information to law enforcement for two reasons — fear and apathy.
Crime Stoppers works because it is designed to overcome fear by allowing citizens to remain anonymous, and overcome apathy by offering cash rewards for information leading to the solution of major crimes. If you have information regarding any of the crimes or wanted persons profiled below, remember that your tip can be given anonymously. You will not be asked to identify yourself; you will be identified by a number only. Any reward you are entitled to can also be paid without your identity being given.
The Port Angeles Police Department Crime Prevention Officer is the Law Enforcement Coordinator for a local Crime Stoppers chapter that became operational in early 1997. The local chapter is called North Olympic Crime Stoppers (NOCS) and serves law enforcement agencies and citizens throughout Clallam County. NOCS is one of more than 1700 Crime Stoppers chapters located throughout the United States and 34 other countries.
Always call 911 in the event of an emergency. Otherwise call 452-4545 for non-emergency assistance.
The program provides the public with information regarding specific crimes and pays a reward of up to $1000 for information that leads to any arrest with the filing of felony charges. Persons calling in tips do not have to give their name and may remain anonymous if they wish. The 24-hour toll free phone number for North Olympic Crime Stoppers is 1-800-222-TIPS (8447)
