Wise County's 10 Most Wanted

WHAT IS CRIME STOPPERS?

Crime Stoppers involves your support and information as a citizen in the fight against crime. Cash rewards up to $1000 are offered to citizens who furnish information leading to the arrest and indictment of felony crime offenders or to the capture of felony fugitives. Your identity is strictly protected. Additional rewards are paid for court testimony, if you are willing to testify and the District Attorney feels your testimony is needed.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Most of the information received by Crime Stoppers is by telephone.

You may call the Crime Stoppers 24 Hour Hotline at 940-627-8477 or 1-800-643-8477 if long distance.

You may also leave an anonymous tip through this web site. 

When a call is received by Crime Stoppers it is logged with the date, time, and a brief summary of the callers information. Callers are furnished with a secret code number which is used in subsequent transactions. Callers may remain anonymous, with no pressure to reveal their identity, and still collect their rewards.

If a callers information results in the arrest and indictment of an offender or the apprehension of a fugitive, the caller will be contacted and arrangements made so that the person can receive his/her reward in cash and preserve his anonymity.

HOW ARE THE REWARDS PAID?

A board of prominent citizens oversees the Crime Stoppers program and approves the rewards to be paid, based on information presented by the Law Enforcement Coordinator. This board does not know who called in the information. The board is presented the facts and the code number is the only identifier used.

DOES IT WORK?

YES!!!

Crime Stoppers is working, and without spending any of your tax dollars!

Crime Stoppers is a nonprofit organization and is funded entirely through donations from the public and through probation fees paid by criminal offenders. Contributions are tax deductible.

WHO BENEFITS?

THE COMMUNITY:

All citizens benefit. There is a greater awareness of crime in the community and stronger contributions in solving crime, making Wise County a safer place to live.

THE POLICE:

Communications between law enforcement officials and the community working in cooperation with the Crime Stoppers program.

THE MEDIA:

Better media relations and cooperation between the police and community.

EVERYONE BENEFITS EXCEPT THE CRIMINALS!!!
