Submit an Anonymous Tip (Do What's Right)

The Davenport Police Department has partnered with Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities to make it simple for everyone to anonymously report information and ask for help through the “Do What’s Right” Program. If you see or hear something suspicious or concerning, we encourage you to submit an anonymous tip, anytime/anywhere. Let’s work together in keeping our community safe. #StaySafeDavenport

SUBMIT A TIP to our partners at Crime Stoppers of the quad cities:

ORIGIN- Do What's Right

An action group of Davenport Police Department employees joined together and were charged with providing a solution to the question, “What can the Davenport Police Department do to help prevent a mass shooting in our community?” Through small group collaboration, research, and weekly meetings, the team learned that prior to most mass shooting incidents, other people knew about the attacker’s idea and/or plan to attack. With this key piece of information, the team embarked on finding a medium for an individual to anonymously report information that is seen or heard allowing actions to be taken to prevent an act of violence from occurring.

HOW IT WORKS- Do What's Right
  • An individual submits anonymous tip.
  • Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities receive tip
  • Tip is relayed to the appropriate agency.
  • Davenport Police personnel make a decision to have emergency response, call in detectives to investigate further or assign for follow up.
  • Level of threat determines if a phone call, text message and/or e-mail is disseminated to an identified group of employees.
  • Threat assessment may involve communication and partnerships with mental health professionals.
GOALS- Do What's Right
  • Prevent acts of violence that take the lives of others.
  • Provide an anonymous means for citizens to report information that may prevent an act of violence.
  • Assess a threat before it becomes an action.
  • Determine an appropriate response with a focus on early intervention. 
  • Provide an anonymous means for citizens to report information that may lead to the identity of a suspect prior to additional crimes being committed.

Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in Rock Island County, Illinois and Scott County, Iowa, in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.

Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number and Web Tips to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime.

Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender.

Crime Stoppers relies on volunteer Directors and tax-deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
