About the Clarksville-Montgomery County Crime Stoppers Program
The first Crime Stoppers program in the United States began on September 8, 1976. The organization is a community-based crime-solving program that assists local law enforcement. The Clarksville-Montgomery County Crime Stoppers program was approved as a non-profit entity, 501(c)(3) on March 11, 1985. This local governing entity of the Crime Stoppers, known as the Board, is a member of the national Crime Stoppers organization and abides by its rules and regulations. The Board’s leadership is vested in the positions of the Executive Committee. The Board is made up of local volunteer citizens, who elect an Executive Committee to conduct and operate any day-to-day needs of the Crime Stoppers program or Board.
The Board works closely with Austin Peay State University Police AND the Clarksville Police Department.
The Crime Stoppers program is funded by donations, fundraising, and up to $2 from each guilty city traffic violation. NO TAX DOLLARS are involved. The reward money paid out by the program is from fundraising and donations from concerned citizens and businesses.
