Stateline Area Crime Stoppers encourages members of Freeport and Stephenson County to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.

Stateline Area Crime Stoppers provides a toll free telephone number (1-866-TIPS NOW) to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime. 

You can also submit tips, securely, through our web application. Download the P3 application from your app store.  Select Stateline Area Crime Stoppers and you'll be able to submit tips and stay updated on crimes and wanted suspects throughout our county.  

You can also find us on Facebook and if you have any questions email us at 


Tipsters will remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest.

Stateline Area Crime Stoppers relies on volunteer directors, court fees and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
