Latest Crime of the Week

Help support local Crime Stoppers efforts

  • 24 August 2016
Help support local Crime Stoppers efforts

Crime Stoppers brings a Crime of the Week to the public every week to remind you that as you are enjoying the freedom of living in a land that respects our individual rights and liberties, there is – and always will be - a segment of the community that attempts to avoid the laws which were created for our mutual benefit and the common good of us all. We offer cash rewards that help take these criminals off the street – and these cash rewards come from you through your generous contributions and fundraisers we hold.

Our hanger party, which is coming up on Labor Day weekend at the LRS hanger at Abraham Lincoln Capitol Airport, is one of those fundraisers. We’ll always be out there helping to bring the criminals we mention weekly on the Crime of the Week and the hundreds of other law breakers, to justice. Please support our efforts and always remember the value of all of the tips that are generated on the Crime Stopper tip line with the rewards we offer through your support.
