Since 1980, Crime Stoppers has played an active role in the fight against crime in Lincoln and Lancaster County. The success of the program can be directly attributed to the efforts of our local law enforcement and the residents and business owners who care about stopping and preventing crime in our community. Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy. 

As of January 1, 2023, Crime Stoppers tips have led to:

  • 11,582 cases cleared
  • 9,314 arrests
  • $333,975 rewards approved
  • $5.5 million in property recovered
  • 1,435 tips received in 2022

Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number, web tips and mobile app tips to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime.

Anonymity & Cash Rewards

Tipsters can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender. Calls are accepted on the Crime Stoppers tipline phone. This phone is a stand-alone instrument which does not provide caller ID and conversations are not recorded. The call taker receiving the information completes the tips information form, makes initial inquiries and then passes the information to the investigating unit. The web tip process is completely secure and anonymous, with IP info stripped so there is no way to track the tipster. 

Crime Stoppers relies on volunteer directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program. Learn more about the non-profit organization here:
