Crime Stoppers

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. 

Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number, Web Tips and Text-A-Tip 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. 

Crime Stoppers relies on volunteer Directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
