Crime Stoppers Report of the Week

 January 12, 2017

Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.

Crime Stoppers is a not-for-profit, 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to assisting police by paying rewards for information about criminals and criminal activity. We want to help make our communities safer; and last year we had many successes which were covered in news stories throughout the year. We’ve even initiated special programs to help identify and apprehend those involved in gun violence, such as the special reward for information leading to the arrest of the person -or persons- involved in the homicide of young Alaysia Bennett.

Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.

In recent years there has been a gradual, but steady increase in gun violence in our country and the loss of life continues to grow. On December 20th 19 year old Alaysia Bennett was killed when a barrage of bullets was fired into a vehicle occupied by her and four other persons, one of them a 3 year old baby. The senseless end of this young girl’s life, a girl who had a bright future ahead of her, brings focus on the dangerous state of affairs we are faced with in the world today- not to mention the near miss of an even greater unimaginable tragedy that could have taken place on that night.
 

Crime Stoppers Thanks You For a Great 2016!

 December 29, 2016

Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.

Crime Stoppers thanks all of you in Sangamon and Menard Counties for your ongoing support of our program as we close out a  successful year. There was a dramatic increase in the number of tips from the public in 2016 and as a result, we saw a 19% increase in arrests from the previous year. In total there were over 100 arrests directly attributed to Crime Stopper tips leading the Board of Directors of Crime Stoppers to approve over $30,000 in rewards to anonymous tipsters. As a further testament to people’s desire to get involved and help stop criminal activity in the area, there were over two dozen tipsters who did not want a reward even though the information they gave us resulted in an arrest.

Help Get Stolen Weapons Off the Street

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week December 15, 2016 Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties. Crime Stoppers is looking for information about guns which were stolen in a burglary to Letz Hunt and Sport in October. Some of these guns have already been used in shooting incidents in the Springfield area and were probably the weapons used in a number of the recent armed robberies. It’s time for those with knowledge of the whereabouts of these weapons to come forward with information- before additional innocent persons are victimized or worse yet, killed. A failure to take action to prevent a tragic incident is something that just shouldn’t happen. There were 53 weapons stolen in the burglary and although police have recovered several of them, many more remain in Springfield and they need to be taken off the street. If Crime Stoppers gets information that helps in the recovery of a large quantity of weapons we might end up paying the highest reward we’ve ever paid in Springfield. Call us with your tips at 788-8427 or leave a tip on the website cashfortips.us. All tips are anonymous, all rewards are cash, and any information could help save an innocent life.
