Linn County Crime Stoppers is non-profit organization that allows citizens to report crime, maintain anonymity, and if their information leads to an arrest, could lead to a financial reward.

About the Crime Stoppers Program
Crime Stoppers is the community, law enforcement and media working together to solve crimes. It provides a way for citizens to help solve crimes by calling or texting in clues. A good clue can be a great advancement in solving a crime and often comes from a concerned citizen. Crime Stoppers encourages citizens to volunteer information helpful to law enforcement agencies by guaranteeing anonymity and by offering a cash reward for information leading to an arrest.

Crime Stoppers is an effective way to involve citizens in fighting and preventing crime in their communities. Much of the success is due to participation in the program by local media. Newspapers, radio stations and television stations help to publicize the Crime Stoppers numbers and to encourage awareness of crimes by printing and broadcasting information about crimes that citizens can help solve.
