What is Crime Stoppers?
Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization working with the community, law enforcement and the news media to help solve crimes.
How Crime Stoppers Works
People with knowledge about crimes that have occurred can call a hotline, text or log into the Crime Stoppers website, and provide crime tip information. The tipster’s identity is always encrypted and a private code is assigned to the tipster. If the information leads to an arrest, the tipster is eligible to receive a reward of up to $1,000.
