Governor Rick Perry has declared January Crime Stoppers’ month in Texas.
Since they began in 1976, Crime Stoppers programs have empowered citizens across our state to take a stand against crime. These programs bring together businesses, citizens, law enforcement, and the media to combat crime and make our communities safer.
Combining media awareness, monetary rewards, and anonymity for tipsters, Crime Stoppers has created an effective method for solving crimes and helping citizens take back control over their neighborhoods. Crime Stoppers has been particularly effective in Texas, where anonymous tips have led to 175,000 arrests and $1.2 billion dollars in property recovered and narcotics seized since its inception.
Huntsville-Walker County Crime Stoppers pays up to $1,000 dollars in cash rewards for tips that lead to the arrest of the person or persons involved in crimes. You don’t have to give your name when you call. You can call Crime Stoppers at 294-9494.
