What is Crime Stoppers?
Crime Stoppers began in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in September of 1976. Members of the local community in partnership with the media and law enforcement began an effort to provide crime-solving assistance to law enforcement.
A cash reward is offered to anonymous persons who telephone the Crime Stoppers hot line with information that leads to the arrest and indictment of persons responsible for felony offenses.
The Crime Stoppers program has enjoyed great success boasting an average conviction rate of 95% on cases solved by Crime Stoppers' tips. The Crime Stoppers programs worldwide have solved over a half a million crimes and recovered over $3 billion worth of stolen property and narcotics.
Today, there are over 1,000 Crime Stoppers programs in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, Bahamas, British West Indies, Micronesia, and other nations.
