Corpus Christi Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization operated by volunteers in the community to provide information to Police about unsolved crimes. Corpus Christi Crime Stoppers guarantees that anyone who calls Crime Stoppers will remain completely anonymous for their protection, so the caller will never be known to the criminal, never be compelled to appear in court, and not be subject to investigation. Crime Stoppers offers rewards to overcome the challenge of apathy and as a tool to provide incentive for those who are not willing to communicate with law enforcement. The rewards and operating expenses are entirely from donations and no tax dollars go toward the Crime Stoppers program.
Anyone with any information about an unsolved crime or knows the location of a fugitive should call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS (8477) or submit the tip online at www.888TIPS.com. Anyone who would like to donate to Crime Stoppers can find out more at the website or visit the Corpus Christi Crime Stoppers facebook page. Crime Stoppers is the link between law enforcement, the media, and the public in an effort to reduce crime, reduce the fear of crime, and enhance public safety.
