Hill Country Area Crime Stoppers

Who We Are

 

Purpose:

Hill Country Area Crime Stoppers, Inc. is a non-profit volunteer citizen directed organization founded on the principle that someone other than the criminal has information about a crime. Our goal is to generate Anonymous Tips from the communities and empower the public by showing them that they can make a difference. We provide a 24-hour, bilingual toll-free tip line 1-866-756-TIPS (8477) to the public and anonymity as the shield of protection given to callers, who are eligible for cash rewards if they provide viable information about a crime. These rewards come through the 33rd Judicial District from defendants placed on community supervision. The idea is to allow the criminal to help pay for a system that assists in the criminal’s apprehension rather than use tax revenues or state monies. $8700.00 in rewards was for the year 2004, and as of January 31, 2005, we have paid out $2600. The Board meets monthly to process any eligible rewards for anonymous tipsters that helped solved a crime, review new methods of advertising our program and most importantly, our Crime Stoppers Hotline # 1- 866-756-TIPS (8477). This Board of Directors is responsible for setting policy, raising the day to day operational funds, determining the amount of reward payments, acting as trustee of funds, and maintaining liaisons with the media, law enforcement and the public. Our Program is certified by the Texas Crime Stoppers Advisory Council, Office of the Governor, Criminal Justice Division.
