Default $500 reward for reporting “illegal guns” in new york

Peekskill, a town in New York, has created a program that allows people to make money by snitching on their neighbors.

Peekskill is installing an anonymous tip line that will allow callers to alert authorities about suspected illegal guns. If the information provided to the police results in confiscating an “illegal firearm,” the caller makes 500 bucks. Just like that.

The program is called “Operation Safe Streets.”

It's kind of like Germany during WWII, they had neighbors selling out neighbors there back then also!

It gets better. They are also offering rewards for turning in citizens that purchase Legal goods like MREs and Match containers.

From the picture, it doesn't look like a ghetto or an Aryan Nation stronghold. It just might be a case of political grandstanding, with zero outcome. Would be interesting to know how many illegal guns this town will end up collecting.

How do you collect a reward if you provide an anonymous tip?

Has anyone called the number to see if such a reward is legit?

Good point. I wonder if the Author should have used the phrase "Confidential" and not anonymous?

I think you remain anonymous as a tipper. If a confiscation results, you graduate to "confidential".

Probably somebody gets the "reward" money, but it won't be the caller.
But this is, as somebody posted, like 1930's Germany. Only instead of reporting people suspected of being Jews, they will be reporting people suspected of exercising their Constitutional rights.
The late, great "Land of the Free" is going down the tubes.
Instead of worrying about states seceding from the Union, we should be evicting states like New York, Massachusetts, and Kalifornicateya.
