WHAT IS CRIME STOPPERS?
Crime stoppers is the most successful, fastest-growing anticrime program in the country. Crime Stoppers was founded in Albuquerque New Mexico in 1976 and since that time over 800 programs have been established throughout North America. Since crime stoppers programs have been in operation over 300,000 cases have been solved.
Our local Crime Stoppers program began in Forsyth County mid-1997. This program came into existence to assist local law enforcement and focusing on crime problems in the immediate Forsyth County area.
WHY DOES CRIME STOPPERS WORK?
Crime Stoppers is designed to combat two major problems of law enforcement:
Citizens are afraid of criminal retaliation if they cooperate with police during an investigation. To combat this fear Crime Stoppers has established a system whereby collars can remain totally anonymous.
Citizens have an overall attitude of apathy. To combat this problem Crime Stoppers is offering cash rewards of up to $1000 to citizens whose call leads to the arrest of a criminal offender.
HOW DOES CRIME STOPPERS WORK?
Unsolved crimes are selected by Crime Stoppers and a reward up to $1000 is offered for information leading to the arrest of the offenders in the case. A number of locations in Forsyth County, like the courthouse, office buildings, convenience stores, etc., are selected and crime stoppers cases are posted there requesting information. Then if you have information about the crime after seeing the crime stoppers posters call the crime stoppers number at 770.888.7308.
