GALVESTON COUNTY CRIME STOPPERS
Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number and Web Tips to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime.
Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender. This provides the community a safer place to live and work.
Crime Stoppers relies on volunteer Directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
Crime stopper is funded by grants from the Criminal Justice Division. It also receives funds from the courts when fines are paid by those who have been arrested or convicted. None of the funding comes from your tax dollars.
Crime doesn't pay but Galveston County Crimes Stoppers does!
