What is Crime Stoppers?
Crime Stoppers offers a cash reward to anonymous persons who call the Crime Stoppers hot line with information which leads to the arrest and indictment of the person(s) responsible for felony offenses. The Crime Stoppers program averages a conviction rate of 95% on cases solved by Crime Stoppers’ tips. Worldwide, Crime Stoppers programs have solved over a half a million crimes and recovered over 3 billion dollars worth of stolen property and narcotics.
Why Do We Need Crime Stoppers?
The program was created to combat the three major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information: fear of reprisal, reluctance to get involved, and an attitude of apathy. Crime Stoppers helps resolve these problems by offering anonymity to people who provide information about crimes, and paying rewards when a Crime Stopper tip leads to an arrest and indictment of a person(s) who commits a felony.
Three Essential Elements Make Up a Crime Stoppers Program
North Carolina Crime Stoppers Association
