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.
