Crime Stoppers is a community crime prevention organization that rewards anonymous tipsters while supporting law enforcement partners to solve and stop crime.
Crime Stoppers is based on the principal that “someone other than the criminal has information that can solve a crime” and was created to combat the three major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information:
- · A fear of REPRISAL
- · An attitude of APATHY, and
- · A reluctance to get INVOLVED
Crime Stoppers resolves these concerns by:
- · Offering ANONYMITY to people who provide information about crimes.
- · Paying cash REWARDS when the information supplied leads to arrest.
