Community Response to Crime
In response to incidents of violent crime that are increasingly impacting young people, City and community leaders came together to stop the violence. A community Town Hall meeting on this topic was conducted May 30, 2009 at Sinclair Community College.
In addition to getting involved early to help prevent crime before it occurs, officials urged the community to anonymously share any information they have about criminal activity.
CRIME STOPPERS: You can share crime tip information anonymously through "Crime Stoppers" by calling 222-STOP. You can also submit a Crime Stoppers web tip online or by text message while still remaining anonymous. To submit a tip online, click here. To submit a crime tip using your cell phone, text the word “TIP400” followed by your message to CRIMES (274637). Crime Stoppers will NOT receive your phone number. For more information regarding text tips or to view a demonstration, visit www.smscrimetips.com. Tipsters to Crime Stoppers may be eligible for a financial reward up to $1,000 dollars if their information leads to an arrest and indictment.
You can also report a crime tip by calling the Dayton Police Department at 333-COPS. You do not have to reveal you identity.
