Crime Stoppers is comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement to receive information on crimes. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase arrests in our community.
Crime Stoppers is a three prong approach to preventing and solving crimes. The first of the program is to empower the community by providing a safe way to report tips related to criminal activity. Secondly, Crime Stoppers partners with all forms of media in the region to publicize felony crimes and inform the community on how to anonymously submit tips, for example through website, downloadable smart phone app and the 800#. Law Enforcement is the final part of the triangle; they follow up on tips from the community members.
Crime Stoppers program is funded by private donations and annual fund-raising events. NO TAX DOLLARS are involved. The reward money paid out by the program is from the fund-raising and donations from concerned citizens and businesses.
