Silent Observer encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and lack of interest.
Silent Observer provides a telephone hotline and web tip page to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies in their crime-fighting efforts. In addition, tips can be submitted through the free app "P3Tips."
Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest and conviction, or grand jury indictment, of a felony offender.
Silent Observer relies on volunteer Directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
