Where Do the registration and sponsorship fees go?

  • Ensures there are sufficient funds to reward substantiated tips.
  • Pays for necessary support services such as the anonymous tip line and website tip support
  • Creates marketing materials to assist in fundraising event efforts, generates awareness and encourages citizen involvement
  • Involves youth in crime prevention through the Student Crime Stoppers Program
  • Sets up classes and workshops to teach people how to better protect themselves and their families from crime.

What your support accomplishes:

  • Honest people replace “informants” as the primary source of information needed to solve cases.
  • Crucial information is willingly provided rather than having to be tracked down.
  • Illegal activities are made less attractive because citizens are not afraid to report crimes.
