Crime Stoppers

Crime StoppersThe Crime Stoppers Program began in 1977 from the efforts of local police departments and the Cuyahoga County Chiefs of Police Association. 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 is comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement to receive information on crimes. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase arrests in our community.

Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number, Text Tips and Web Tips to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime.


Crime Stoppers relies on volunteer directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program. 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.
