What is Crime Stoppers
Crime Stoppers or Crimestoppers is a community program that allows people to provide anonymous information about criminal activity. Often managed by non-profit groups or the police, it operates separately from the 911 or other standard methods of contacting police. This allows a person to provide crime solving assistance to the authorities without being directly involved in the investigation process. Founded in the United States in 1976 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Crime Stoppers later caught on in Canada and the United Kingdom.
