“Anonymous tips from Crimestoppers allow law enforcement to solve many crimes by building much-needed intelligence for future cases across the region. Crimestoppers is also the only civilian source that works and performs this critical function and we appreciate their valuable assistance in crime fighting!”– JPSO Sheriff Newell Normand.
In 2016, Crimestoppers received over 18,000 calls, processed over 7,300 tips for investigations which resulted in, as of February 1, 2017, 145 arrests, over 300 cases cleared/charges laid and 76 rewards paid. Approximately $90,000 in rewards were earned. Crimestoppers works with schools, civic and neighborhood associations, businesses and faith-based organizations providing prevention strategies and promoting positive change.
Crimestoppers funds programs through individual and corporate memberships, as well as special events. As a member, you receive firsthand information on cases and crime trends, and have opportunities to network with law enforcement. We will also work with a specific industry to promote a Crimestoppers day. The October National Night Out Against Crime allows organizations to stand together for community safety. Working with our local musicians, the fall “Blues Night” provides a fun way to support our programs. Please consider purchasing a membership or attending our special events. It’s only through your generosity that we can continue our work.
