CRIME DOESN’T PAY BUT WE DO!
CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for new information that solves a crime! Police solve many crimes in our area but they can’t solve them without your help. Local citizens created the program to help solve crime through the combined efforts of private citizens, the police, and the media.
There are many reasons why some callers do not call police: fear of the criminal, mistrust of police, or a disgruntled former crime victim. Other callers don’t know who to call. Some fear police will not believe them, and other unique situations make the caller feel they have no where else to turn for help. Many callers take great risks to help us.
YOU CAN BE A NAMELESS HERO!
24-hours a day, seven days a week interviewers ask callers for the facts on WHO did the crime WHERE did the crime take place, WHEN did the crime occur and WHAT does the caller know that can help us solve the crime. If the caller does not wish to work directly with police, the caller is given a code number. No arrest is ever made just on a tip. Interviewers send your information to the investigator who must find proof.
HOW CAN I GET A REWARD?
Although most callers are motivated by civic duty rather than cash, callers may get a reward if the tip is new information that leads to the arrest of the person(s) who committed the crime. Most callers refuse a reward to help crime victims and police. Once a month, volunteers approve rewards. Callers must call back with a code number. The caller is then told where to pick up the reward. The caller never has to give his name.
DOES IT WORK?
YES! Since 1983, your tips helped the CrimeStoppers program (formerly Silent Witness) solve many crimes: murders, assaults, robberies, drug deals and others. Tips have even prevented crimes. Leave a Tip Now.
HOW CAN I HELP?
Rewards are paid from donations. ALL donations and volunteers are appreciated! Invite us to be a speaker at your next meeting.
