Crime Stoppers is a registered, non-profit charitable organization, structured as a working alliance between the Community, the Media and the various Police agencies. The program provides a medium for tipsters wishing to remain anonymous to provide valuable information to assist the Police in their investigations. Crime Stoppers callers never have to identify themselves or give evidence in court. All Tipsters calling the Crime Stoppers line are eligible to receive a cash reward up to $2000.00. The type of crime solved, number of arrests, and other parameters will determine the amount of the award. Rewards are not funded by tax dollars. Money for the operation of Crime Stoppers and rewards is raised from the private sector by Members of the Board of Crime Stoppers. The Board is comprised of citizens throughout the county.
