Through close collaboration with local law enforcement agencies and the citizens of Houston, Crime Stoppers of Houston has successfully solved over 34,900 felony cases and arrested nearly 26,500 felony fugitives through its famed 713-222-TIPS(8477) Tip Line Program. The program continues to be a national crime prevention model and strives to empower and motivate citizens to report crime.
Additionally, Crime Stoppers’ Safe Community Program works diligently to empower, educate, and engage the community in the important conversations about crime, public safety and the protection of society’s most vulnerable citizens. The program identifies and targets crime affecting the citizens of Houston and Harris County, and takes profound steps to prevent crime before it occurs.
Since 1997, Crime Stoppers’ Safe School Program has been keeping Greater Houston Area school campuses safe by providing students with a safe and anonymous way to report crime and potential dangers on their campus and community. The program currently engages and educates students from kindergarten through high school in Greater Houston Area school campuses, including private and charter schools, as well as school staff, parents and school law enforcement. It has solved almost 2,000 school cases and removed 300 weapons from our schools.
Crime Stoppers’ Fallen Hero Project protects, defends and gives back to the heroes who keep Houston safe. In the event that an officer or firefighter is injured or killed in the line of duty, as the result of felonious crime, Crime Stoppers’ anonymous cash reward of up to $5,000 will double to $10,000.
