“Anonymous tips from Crimestoppers allows 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 2015 Crimestoppers received over 16,000 calls, processed 8,600 tips for investigation which resulted in 198 arrests, 335 cases cleared and 375 charges laid with 70 rewards paid netting approximately $75,000. Crimestoppers works with schools, civic and neighborhood associations, businesses and faith based organizations providing prevention strategies and promoting positive change.
FUNDRAISING / EVENTS
Crimestoppers funds their programs through individual and corporate memberships, as well as special events. As a member, you receive first-hand information on cases, 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.
