Originally founded in 1986 as Cedar Rapids Crime Stoppers, Linn County Crime Stoppers is a partnership of concerned citizens, local law enforcement agencies and local media working together to resolve community problems through the apprehension of criminals and prevention of crime. It is an effective partnership because everyone shares an equal role in solving crime. It is a crime information collection system, which enables anyone with information about a crime, and who wishes to remain anonymous, to pass that information on to law enforcement through a neutral organization.

Our board of citizen volunteers establishes policy, decides the amount and method of rewards, and raises funds. Board members are selected by the different jurisdictions within Linn County.

Cities and towns represented:

Alburnett, Bertram, Cedar Rapids, Center Point, Central City, Coggon, Covington, Ely, Fairfax, Hiawatha, Lisbon, Marion, Mount Vernon, Palo, Prairieburg, Robins, Springville, Troy Mills, Viola, Walford, Walker, Western, Whittier and Rural Linn County

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.

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.
