What is Crime Stoppers?

Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization of citizens against crime. If you have any information regarding any criminal activity, call (316) 775-0055!  Remember, we do not subscribe to caller I.D.. and no one will ever ask your name. You could be eligible for up to a $1,000.00 reward if your information leads to an arrest.

Philosophy

Crime Stoppers is based on the principal that "Someone other than the criminal has information that can solve a crime" and was created to combat the three major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information:

Fear of REPRISAL
An attitude of APATHY
Reluctance to get INVOLVED

Crime Stoppers resolves these problems by:

Offering ANONYMITY to people who provide information about crimes.
Paying REWARDS when the information supplied leads to arrest.

Three Essential Elements Make Up a Crime Stopper Program

The Community
Citizens are responsible for forming a Crime Stoppers non-profit corporation, whose directors establish policy, determine amount and method of reward payments, work closely with the police and the media and generally oversee the program. The directors are also responsible for fund raising, and all volunteer service. Tax money is not sought.

The Media
Crime Stoppers methods, objectives, successes and phone numbers are publicized on a regular basis by the media. An unsolved "Crime of the Week" is given special treatment with details published in newspapers, on radio and in certain cases a re-enactment on television.

The Police
A special Crime Stoppers phone with a well publicized number is provided to the community. Callers are assigned a special Code number and NEVER give their names. If, after the investigation, the information leads to an arrest, the caller is entitled to a reward.
