Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week December 23, 2015   I’m Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard Counties. This holiday season in place of telling you about burglaries,Crime Stoppers wants to tell you about an exciting new program that can help you keep track of your personal property and can help you recover your property if it’s stolen. This citizen property inventory system allows you not only to store serial numbers and I.D. numbers of property you own, it also allows you to store photo’s of jewelry and other personal property  on a data base you control and only you can access. The web site is reportit.leadsonline.com.  In the event of theft or natural disaster you can retrieve this valuable information for police reporting purposes or insurance purposes and it can help in the recovery of stolen items. A link to this valuable program is on this website at the bottom of the page and can also be found on the Springfield Police Department web site spd.springfield.il.us. But don’t forget The Crime Stopper tip line 788-8427 if you have anonymous information about crimes or criminals. You can also leave a tip on this page or follow the instructions to leave a text tip. We pay cash, up to $1000, if you can help get criminals off the street.

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week December 17, 2015   This week Crime Stoppers wants to take a minute to ask those of you who live or work in Springfield to support the new Campus Crime Stoppers programs which were formed at Lanphier, Southeast, and Springfield High Schools. These programs are run by students who want to create a better environment in their schools, a better place to learn, and a better place to enjoy their teenage years. The Campus Crime Stopper programs provide a means for students to anonymously report the criminals and violators who are responsible for so many negative things that go on in the schools. If you expand on that line of thought a little, consider what the existing Crime Stoppers program is already doing for the communities we’re a part of in Central Illinois. Crime Stoppers of Sangamon and Menard counties has help law enforcement take thousands of criminals off the streets and has recovered millions of dollars worth of drugs and stolen property. If you know someone who is responsible for criminal activity, call Crime Stoppers on the anonymous tip line 788-8427. We all want a better place to live and prosper in, and doing your part in taking criminals off the street is a great way to improve life for all of us. You can give a tip and make our community better on this web site or by text if you don’t want to call the tip line. Text instructions are also on this site, and all tips are anonymous!       Though we take tips 365 days a year, we also want to remember the holiday season and wish the best to you and your families….                                                                                                           Happy Holidays from Crime Stoppers!

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week December 10, 2015   Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stopper Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard Counties Two weeks ago, with the help of observant citizens, Springfield Police were able to make an arrest of a burglary suspect who was believed to be responsible for several west side burglaries. No sooner than police took one criminal off the street, however, another series of burglaries occurred last week at west side residential areas of Springfield near the mall and north of Washington Park. We're pleased that fewer people are leaving personal property in plain view in vehicles, and there haven’t been as many reports of burglaries to vehicles so far this holiday season. Unfortunately, the spike this week in residential burglaries has put a damper on recent successes.  Keep your eyes open, report suspicious activity to police, and call Crime Stoppers with your tips on suspects. We want these criminals off the street so call 788-8427 with the tips you have. You can also leave tip information on our web site Cashfortips.us. Crime Stoppers pays up to $1000 for anonymous information that leads to an arrest.

You can also call Crime Stoppers with your tips at 788-8427 or text a tip to us. Remember, all tips to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and you can earn a cash reward if your tip leads to and arrest.
