How it Works

Manchester CrimeLine relies on cooperation between the police, the media, and the general community to provide a flow of information about crime and criminals. 

Citizens are encouraged to contact Manchester CrimeLine at 603-624-4040 with information regarding criminal activity. ALL CALLERS REMAIN ANONYMOUS. Any information that leads to the arrest and indictment of criminals is eligible for a cash reward from CrimeLine. 

The Phone Call

Calls are received at the Manchester CrimeLine phone. This phone is a stand alone instrument which does not provide caller ID, and conversations are not recorded. The Manchester CrimeLine  Coordinator receiving the information completes the tip information form, makes initial inquiries and then passes the information to the investigating officer or division. Confidential calls are accepted from citizens regarding any information about unsolved crimes or criminal activity.

By guaranteeing a caller`s anonymity, CrimeLine allows the caller to give information in a positive atmosphere without the prospect of retribution. By offering cash rewards for information leading to the arrest and indictment of individuals involved, CrimeLine encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide valuable information.

The Online Web Tip

Tipsters now have the option of giving us tips online. The process is completely secure and anonymous and is a very effective and efficient means of safely communicating with us in today's world. Our Web Tip process is powered by the world's leading online tip solution provider, Anderson Software.  

The very unique integrated Two-Way Dialog capabilities allow the tipster to come back and provide additional information to their tip at any time, but also provides a secure means for the coordinator to ask questions or provide reward information back to the tipster through the same secure and encrypted interface.

Web tips can easily be submitted by clicking the "Submit a Tip" button on the main menu.


Tracking your Tip

After the caller provides information regarding  criminal activity the CrimeLine Coordinator will give the caller a CrimeLine Identification Number (Ex. 2010-54) To maintain anonymity the caller must use this number for any future correspondence with the CrimeLine Coordinator regarding the progress of the tip. To maintain anonymous, callers must always use their CrimeLine Identification Number when checking the status of a tip, and during the reward process.

When information provided by a caller leads to the arrest and indictment of a criminal, the caller is responsible for contacting the CrimeLine Coordinator to check the status of the case. All cases are submitted for reward consideration to the Manchester CrimeLine Board of Directors. Once a reward has been determined, arrangements will be made for cash payment of the reward.

Solved cases with outstanding rewards will be posted on the "Tracking Your Tip" portion of the Main Menu.

To maintain anonymous, the caller is responsible for tracking his/her tip through the media  and this website. Callers may also call the Manchester CrimeLine Tipline at 624-4040 for information regarding pending cases. Callers must have their CrimeLine Identification Number when inquiring about a case.
