TIP-MONT, the resource "crime stoppers" program managed by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, offers substantial rewards to callers who report valuable information on natural resource crimes. If the information leads to an arrest, the caller may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 and may remain anonymous.
Callers who observe a crime involving wildlife, fish, Montana’s State Parks or U.S. Forest Service lands or facilities may call 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668) to make a report. The most valuable calls are those placed shortly after a crime occurs that provide accurate detailed information wardens can use to investigate the crime and identify the criminal.
Taking responsibility for protecting Montana's valuable natural resources is something everyone can participate in by calling the TIP-MONT hotline when they observe a crime.
