WHO WE ARE

A REWARDING EXPERIENCE

GIVE A TIP GET A REWARD Crime   Stoppers   is   based   on   the   idea   that   “someone   other   than   the criminal    has    information    that    can    solve    a    crime.”    Anyone    with information   related   to   a   crime   may   call   348-3100.      All   callers   remain anonymous.   The   message   will   go   to   law   enforcement,   but   these calls    are    answered    at    an    answering    center    outside    of    Madison County   and   no   caller   ID   or   recording   device   is   used.      The   caller   is assigned   a   Tipster   Number,   which   can   be   used   to   claim   a   reward. Crime     Stopper     tips     are     forwarded     to     the     appropriate     law enforcement   agency   and   the   tips   may   be   acted   upon.      If   that   tip leads   to   the   arrest   and/or   conviction   of   the   offender   the   tip   is   on, that   person   may   be   eligible   to   receive   a   monetary   tip.   Anywhere from   $25   and   up   to   $1000.      When   a   person   calls   about   a   tip   that leads   to   the   arrest   of   a   probation   offender,   for   instance,   the   payout is   usually   $25.      But   a   tip   may   be   substantially   higher   if   the   offense committed   was   a   felony.      History   shows   that   we   usually   pay   out   tips in    the    amount    of    $200    -    $400,    depending    on    the    crime    and information contained in the tip.

MADISON COUNTY CRIME STOPPERS

STOPPING CRIME IN OUR COMMUNITY Madison   County   Crime   Stoppers,   Inc.   was   chartered   in   1984   solely for   public   purposes.      In   a   publication   written   many   years   ago,   it   was simply    put,    “Madison    County    Crime    Stoppers    exists    to    stop    the criminal    in    your    community”.    State    law    allows    for    offenders    to essentially    pay    for    tips    to    be    gathered!        When    people    commit crimes   and   are   convicted   of   them,   the   District   Attorney   may   require that   they   give   a   financial   contribution   or   fine   to   Crime   Stoppers.     Those     fees     are     commonly     gathered     through     the     Probation Department   or   Courts   and   forwarded   through   the   County   Treasury to   Crime   Stoppers.      Crime   Stoppers   is   fiscally   responsible   for   those funds    and    is    closely    monitored    by    the    State    of    Texas.        Crime Stoppers   also   accepts   donations,   which   may   be   used   for   tips   or   for program   expenses.      We   also   apply   for   grants   to   help   cover   those administrative   expenses.   None   of   our   Board   Members   or   Officers are   paid.   We   are   all   volunteers.   We   strive   to   get   our   community involved   as   well   as   educated   about   crime   in   our   community.   Our goal is realy very simple. We want to reduce crime.
THE BOARD of DIRECTORS and OFFICERS RESPONSIBILITIES CRIME DOESN’T PAY BUT CRIME STOPPERS DOES! Public awareness of Crime Stoppers and our local program is our biggest challenge.  If people don’t know what we do and how to reach us, we don’t get tips, and that means we don’t give payouts.  We man booths at the Mushroom Festival, National Night Out, and other community events, handing out promotional materials.  We have been working with local businesses, who allow us to put our signs up in their windows.  MARI offered to add our logo onto a welcome sign coming into town.  We work closely with local law enforcement and hope to increase participation from tipsters with information that will help law enforcement stop or solve crimes.
