Structure and Funding of Crime Stoppers
Crime Stopper Programs are organized as a not-for-profit organization (Charity). A civilian community board of directors provides direction as to the financial and promotional activities of the program. The board of directors enhances the community involvement aspect, and its function is vital to the program's success.
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.
A community board of directors, made up of persons from throughout the area, meets on a monthly basis to evaluate arrests and to decide on the size of rewards to be paid, up to $1,000 for Felony Crimes and up to $5,000 for unsolved homicides that are older than 3 years. Rewards are then distributed in a private manner to the callers. Anonymous Tipsters are eligible for cash rewards, but, despite this, many callers choose not to collect their rewards.
