Report Crime

How to earn money from reporting crimes and get a cash reward anonymously and how to become an informant for the police

Organisations will reward you with cash payments to report crimes.

It is every UK citizen's responsibility to report any criminal activity to the authorities. We would encourage you to do so without any financial incentive. That way it can be reduced, criminals punished and victims can have the assurance that the perpetrators are duly punished and rehabilitated. By not accepting a payment you are helping the legal system retain valuable resources.

This article is written to assist those who want information about reporting a crime anonymously for a cash reward payment and how to become a Police informant.

How To Become An Informant For The Police

Those that are happening in real time should be reported immediately by dialling 999. The victim can then get immediate assistance and the authorities have a greater chance of catching the criminal and preventing further activity. Some Forces will reward informers for the valuable information they provide for those that have occurred or information leading to the capture of criminals.

There should be no stigma attached to this: you are helping to keep the community safe and providing them with information that will assist their jobs. It is the civic duty of every UK citizen to report a crime they witness.

Police informer jobs will usually secure you cash payments for which you will have to sign a receipt. This is for administrative purposes for accounting. Your identity will be kept confidential and criminals will not be informed about who gave the information.

Crime Stoppers Reward

Crime Stoppers rewards is a charitable organisation where you can confidentially report a crime or give information about a suspected criminal. There is a cash reward of up to 1000. The payment is given to you anonymously. Upon the successful arrest, charge or prosecution you will be given a bank address near to you and a code number to give to the staff. It is paid to you in cash and you will not have to sign for it or leave your details to further protect your identity.

You do not need to claim this money - you can simply report the crime. They will not trace your call and will not try to identify you - they even remove the facility to do 1471 or trace callers. Phone calls are not recorded.

The information you give goes to the emergency services, but your personal details will not be passed on. You will not even have to give evidence in court.

Their telephone number is 0800 555 111 and the lines are kept open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You will speak to a real person, not a pre-recorded message. The operator is not a member of the Force. You can also fill in an online form anonymously at

I have published a book which tells the story of The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital which reveals her origins in the QAIMNS and where she meets a QA veteran of Afghanistan. She still walks her wards and tells her story by taking Scott Grey, a QARANC nurse, to the battlefields of World War One and beyond. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by CG Buswell. Read the first chapter for free.

Police Rewards

There are many TV programmes that offer police rewards to catch criminals. Television viewers will be familiar with the Crimewatch UK program. They are reconstructed on screen in the hope that viewers can help to identify and capture criminals. It does not offer a cash reward for reporting a crime but appeals to the duty of viewers. Their website has these reconstructions for you to watch on your computer as well as an updated most wanted criminals with photos or pictures of their faces.

ITV used to have a monthly programme called Reward: Catching The Criminals. This programme was presented by ITN newsreader Mary Nightingale. She led a team of forensic scientists, experienced criminal investigators and behavioural experts to present unsolved crime. Each had a cash reward of up to 100,000 for any information that will lead to the capture of criminals and the solving of crimes.

You should never feel guilty about reporting a crime or giving information about a criminal. You are helping society and your local area. Criminals do not deserve protection - their victims do. You should feel proud that you have been able to help them protect UK citizens. Only about 4% of those who report a crime claim the cash reward. If you can afford not to claim this money then we would urge you to do so. This will enable this charitable organisation to continue their valuable work.
