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 an anonymous, toll-free tipline, Web tipping and a mobile tip application to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime.
Monies to fund the Crime Stoppers Reward Program comes from people like you... and businesses... special events... the Crime Stoppers Trust Fund...and special law enforcement funds (related to repossessed property and forfeiture sales). We do not receive any government funding. Your taxes do not pay for Crime Stoppers. This is truly a community based program... on a grand scale.
