Linn County Crime Stoppers - About Us

The operational side of the program is handled by local law enforcement officials. They answer all calls received on the Crime Stoppers line and concentrate on investigating and solving crimes with the aid of information called in by citizens.

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 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.

All calls are guaranteed to be confidential and eligible for cash rewards. The rewards vary from $50 to $2,500


No Crime Stoppers rewards are paid out of local, state, or federal tax dollars. All funds are raised through private donations. Crime Stoppers is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation with tax-exempt status.
