What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Law enforcement depends on citizens to provide information concerning criminal acts in order to solve crimes. Fear of reprisal, apathy, and unwillingness to get involved deters involvement of some citizens. Crime Stoppers offers a mechanism to overcome fear of reprisal, apathy, and unwillingness to get involved by promising anonymity for individuals who report information to Crime Stoppers about criminal acts. If the reported information leads to an arrest and/or indictment a cash reward is offered.
