About Crime Stoppers
What is Crime Stoppers?
Crime Stoppers is a civilian, nonprofit organization established within our community. Crime Stoppers offers cash rewards of up to $1,000 to persons providing anonymous information that leads to the arrest of criminals, fugitives or the recovery of stolen property and drugs. Information is received through anonymous secure tips line or through a secure web connection manned by a professional call taker. Each caller is assigned a code number and a password so they can check on the status of their tips.
Why Do We Need Crime Stoppers?
Crime Stoppers is based on the principal that someone other than the criminal has information that can solve a crime and was created to combat the three major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information:
- Fear of REPRISAL
- An attitude of APATHY
- Reluctance to get INVOLVED
Crime Stoppers resolves these problems by:
Promising ANONYMITY to people who provide information about crimes.
If your information leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property or drugs you may be eligible for a cash reward up to $1,000.00.
