Crime StoppersMaking A Difference

Macon County Crime Stoppers & Student Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization of citizens against crime. They offer cash rewards to anyone furnishing anonymous information that leads to the arrest of criminals, including those committing serious felony crimes, and fugitives.

Crime Stoppers is based on the principal that "Someone other than the criminal has information that can solve a crime" and was created to combat the three major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information: Fear of REPRISAL, An attitude of APATHY, Reluctance to get INVOLVED.

Crime Stoppers resolves these problems by: Offering ANONYMITY to people who provide information about crimes. Paying REWARDS when the information supplied leads to arrest. Call (828) 349-2600 for more information.
