Thank You

This week we would like to highlight how Crime Stoppers in partnership with the community and law enforcement are making a difference. In just the first quarter of this year Crime Stoppers has taken in over 200 tips.  These tips led to over $78,000 in recovered guns, cash, property and drugs being taken off the streets. Crime Stoppers is a nonprofit organization that relies on donations and fundraising in order to pay out rewards for information to help solve crimes.  Currently, Crime Stoppers is having a Queen of Hearts drawing every Sunday night at 7pm at Weebles located at 4136 N Peoria Rd.   Additionally, our annual golf outing is fast approaching at Piper Glen Golf Course.  Deadline to register is June 21st.  Additional information and event details regarding these events is available on this website, cashfortips.us.

We are extremely grateful for everyone who has supported our organization since it started in 1983 and we look forward to seeing you at these and other events.
