Wimberly, Sumter Introduce Legislation to Reinforce Anonymity Protection on Criminal Tip Lines

(TRENTON) - Assembly Democrats Benjie E. Wimberly and Shavonda Sumter (Both D- Bergen, Passaic) have introduced legislation to strengthen the anonymity protection of residents who provide information on criminal activity via law enforcement tools such as tip hotlines and websites.

The sponsors said the impetus for this legislation was the numerous concerns raised in Paterson about the lack of enforcement of protection of the tip line caller's identity and personal information.

"Crime in our communities has escalated exponentially and, unfortunately, so has the fear of families' who are willing to help but need to do it anonymously," Wimberly said. "To effectively reduce crime in our communities, everyone - police, residents and businesses--must work together."
