Are There Wanted Criminals Hiding Out in Your Neighborhood?
No one wants to think that there are wanted criminals living near them – maybe even right next door –but the fact of the matter is that these men and women hide out wherever they can, often disguising themselves as responsible citizens in normal communities. They may continue to do so for years, especially if they are wanted by the police, but not suspects in major crimes, or if the authorities have been unable to track them down for some time.
Of course, one of the easiest ways to help police find wanted criminals is simply keeping your eyes open and reporting tips on websites like this one. It's unfortunate that local and national law enforcement officials don't have the time to look as closely as they would like to for every criminal, and so they have to count on concerned citizens to do their part.
If you are using IDThisPerson.com
for the first time, and want to help find wanted criminals in your community, here are a few things to remember:
Wanted criminals can be in any town, city, or state.
Lots of people tend to assume that wanted criminals hang out in certain areas, or only in parts of towns that have lots of crime. This can sometimes be the case, but those who are trying to escape from the law will often attempt to "blend in" in other areas, too.
It only takes a few minutes to help the police track them down.
By creating this website, we have created a fast and simple resource that people can use to look through photos of people who are wanted by the police, or that the authorities would like to question.
Any tip is helpful.
You don't have to know the name or exact location of the wanted criminal to help out. All you have to do is look through the pictures on this website, see if anyone looks familiar, and provide detectives a starting point (like where you saw the person, where they are currently working, etc.)
You can submit information to the site anonymously.
No one, not even law enforcement personnel, can get access to the names and information of people who submit tips anonymously. You can provide your contact details if you prefer, but there is no obligation to do so.
Rewards are given for useful information.
Once the police inform us that they have been able to find someone based on your tip, we will send you a link to get a $25 reward (in the form of a gift card).
No one wants wanted criminals hiding within their neighborhoods, but it's up to each of us to help identify them and provide valuable leads to the authorities. It only takes a few moments of your time, and that one small act could help make your community a lot safer.
