Jackson County Crime Stoppers was created by concerned citizens who wanted to help law enforcement make the community a safer place through anonymous crime reporting and community education.
Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the three key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear of reprisal, an attitude of apathy, and reluctance to get involved.
Jackson County Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number and Web Tips to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime. Each caller is assigned a code number for the purpose of ensuring anonymity.
Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible to receive a cash reward up to $1,000 dollars. Rewards are determined by the Jackson County Board of Directors and are determined by the type of crime, value of property/drugs recovered, number of crimes solved, and whether or not an arrest was made.
