"Crime Stoppers is a not-for-profit, anti-crime program designed to provide citizens a means to anonymously report criminal activity to the police. Crime Stoppers works because of three elements which are essential to the success of the program: Law Enforcement, the Media and Citizens. The citizens who make up the Board of Directors are primarily responsible for seeing that the program runs properly and that the public understands all of its basic principles. The Board raises funds for rewards and some modest administrative expense, determines the amount of reward to be paid, and makes the payment through one of its members. Members maintain good relations with law enforcement personnel, with the media, and they resolve problems which may arise from time to time. Each county organization is responsible for raising their own funds." State of Illinois Crimestoppers Board.
Pike County Crimestoppers is a group of citizens concerned about the well being of our fellow Pike Countians. We are a non profit group dedicated to that apprehension of criminals within our county.
