What is Crime Stoppers?
New Braunfels / Comal County Crime Stoppers is not a unit of the New Braunfels Police Department or Comal County Sheriff's Office, but a self-sufficient non-profit corporation composed of citizens from New Braunfels and Comal County that provides a mechanism for anyone who wishes to report information about:
Location of a wanted person
What Do I Do if I Know About a Crime?
Call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at (830) 620-TIPS (620-8477) or 1-800-640-8422 and give the information about the crime. You will be asked some basic questions but you will not be asked to give your name.
You will be given a code number and instructions on how to call back to learn about the progress of your tip. Your code number is your only link to the Crime Stoppers Hotline, so you need to remember and protect it.
