WHAT IS CRIME STOPPERS?Welcome to the Winnebago CountyWide Crime Stoppers, Wisconsin website.
Crime Stoppers is a cooperative effort between law enforcement agencies, the business community, the news media, and the public, which provides law enforcement agencies with the information they need to solve crimes.
Crime Stoppers encourages people to provide tips that can be vital in the successful solution of a crime by offering cash rewards for tips which lead to the arrest and/or indictment of felony or misdemeanor suspects, and by guaranteeing that the tipster's identity remains unknown.
WHY DO WE NEED CRIME STOPPERS?
Crime Stoppers is based on the principle that "someone other than the criminal has information that may solve a crime" and was created to combat the major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information:
- Fear of REPRISAL
- An attitude of APATHY
- Reluctance to get INVOLVED
HOW DOES IT WORK?When a person contacts Crime Stoppers through the anonymous tip line or website, and the information leads to an arrest, they become eligible for a CASH reward up to $1,000 Dollars. The 24 hour, 7 days a week Crime Stopper telephone maintains a caller's anonymity by assigning a secret code number which is used in the subsequent CASH reward.
Our MissionCrime Stoppers is a organization that rewards members of the community who anonymously assist police in solving crimes.
Our VisionThe vision of Crime Stoppers is to encourage community involvement in solving crimes which will provide a safer place to live, work, and play.
