On Tuesday, July 28, 2020, Prescott Valley Police Department launched it’s new and easy to use Silent Witness reporting button, located on the Prescott Valley Police Department Website.

Prescott Valley Police Department has had a long and historic relationship with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Department, which oversees the program that spans  decades. Developed in 1981, Yavapai Silent Witness was created to enlist the public’s assistance in solving heinous crimes. To date, Yavapai Silent Witness tipsters have aided in the capturing and prosecution of 3621 criminals and 1690 solved cases. This successful program has paid out more than $525,475 for tips leading to the identification, location and arrest of criminals.

To access the Silent Witness Tip Form, go to www.prescottvalleypolice.org. Click on the Silent Witness Tips button, located on the right side of the page. From there, the Silent Witness form will display, which the user may input information relating to the crime tip. All tips are ANONYMOUS, and names are never required or revealed. After completing the form, click SUBMIT and the information is then securely transmitted to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office. Once submitted, the Program Administrator, Chris Wilson, will screen the information and submit it to the appropriate law enforcement agency for follow up. If the information is validated, the Silent Witness may be eligible for a cash reward.
