Rewardable Information

Rewardable information is information or nonlethal assistance that enables or enhances the protection of, or combating terrorism by, U.S. or allied forces. Even if you don’t think the information you have is important, it might help with any current investigations and be rewarded.

What makes a good tip?

Tips that are accurate and detailed are more likely to be verified and rewarded, especially if the information concerns activities or persons of particular interest to the USCENTCOM Department of Defense. Several factors increase the chances of obtaining a reward, including:

  • The accuracy and credibility of the tip information.
  • If the information is provided in a timely manner.
  • Providing accurate contact details of who’s sharing the tip, including an email address and phone number.

The USCENTCOM Department of Defense takes security of information extremely seriously. Any information, including details about who is sharing tips with us, is confidential and protected.
