What is Crime Stoppers?
Crime Stoppers is a not-for-profit organization operating a program that involves the public in the fight against crime. Crime Stoppers provides citizens with a way to anonymously supply the police with information about a crime or potential crime.
A tipster may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2000 for providing information which leads to an arrest, or the recovery of stolen property or the seizure of illegal drugs.
What do we do, and how do we do it?
Crime Stoppers accepts anonymous information from the Public concerning ALL unsolved crimes and criminal activity including: seizure of illegal drugs, marijuana grow-ops, wanted persons, vandalism, or the recovery of stolen property. ALL tips are anonymous; Tipsters are never asked for their name or personal information and will never have to appear in court. No one, not even Crime Stoppers, will know their identity.
If information provided leads to the seizure of illegal drugs, an arrest, or the recovery of stolen property, the tipster may be eligible for a cash reward.
