Welcome to the Green Bay Area Crime Stoppers Website. Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization operated by a volunteer board of directors made up of people from the local community. We encourage the reporting of information or leads which can assist law enforcement with solving crimes. We 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 Tips hotline, the ability to receive Web Tips through our web site, Text Tips and Smart Phone tips to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime. Our goal is to help in the fight against crime, but we are not part of any policy agency.
Tipsters remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest. The Board of Directors oversees the program and approves the rewards to be paid, based on information presented by the Coordinators.
Crime Stoppers relies on volunteer Board Members and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program. All funds used by Crime Stoppers to pay rewards or cover operating expenses are raised in the local community. Crime Stoppers also uses a variety of fund raising events to help raise funds. Volunteers run the program and there are no wage related expenses. When they are available, law enforcement grants are also utilized to assist the program for operational expenses.
