Nebraska Crimestoppers will accept anonymous tips regarding criminal cases and may provide a reward for that information.  When you call, the staff members will not ask for the caller's name. Instead they will assign a Nebraska Crime Stoppers identification code number to the person, and obtain the information, thereby maintaining your anonymity.  Call Crimestoppers at 1-800-422-1494 or log into the link above to submit online tips.
