How it Works

When a tipster calls, they provide their information to the Police Coordinator, they receive a code number and their identity is never revealed, not even to the Coordinator. They are instructed to call Crime Stoppers in a week or two for an update quoting their code number. If the information leads to an arrest, a cash reward is assigned to the tipster. Rewards are determined by the Board of Directors.

Crime Stoppers Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is comprised of a group of fifteen (15) concerned citizens who volunteer their time to serve their community. Crime Stoppers is incorporated as a charitable organization. The Directors of the Corporation administer the affairs of the Corporation including fundraising, control of the funds and payments made as a result of the reward program. Board meetings are held the second Wednesday of every month.

If you are interested in a position on the Crime Stoppers Board of Directors, contact the Police Coordinator for an application and further information.

Police Coordinator
