FAQ

HOW DO I KNOW IF THE INFORMATION I HAVE GIVEN HAS LED TO A SUCCESS?

Each caller is given a special code number that is unique to that caller- rather like a PIN for a bank account.  The caller can then use this code number every time they call to find out the status of the investigation into the information given. If the information leads to either a recovery of property/drugs or to an arrest then the caller is eligible for a reward.

HOW ARE REWARDS PAID?

Once a success has been established and the caller requests the reward, it takes up to two weeks for the reward to be processed.  Rewards are paid in cash and arrangements are made with the caller on how it will be collected.  It can be dropped off at a location suitable to both parties or it can be paid out in a manner acceptable to the caller.

HOW ARE CRIMES CHOSEN FOR THE CRIME OF THE MONTH PROGRAMME?

The Crime of the Month programme nearly always features a murder. The crime must be deemed “unsolved” after a minimum of six months investigations have been carried out. Members of the family of the deceased must give permission to use the file before consideration is given to highlight it. Efforts are made to cover crimes island wide thereby involving the entire island in the Crime Stop programme.
