History of Crime Stoppers
In July 1976, in Albuquerque New Mexico, a university
student was killed during a gas station robbery. After 6 weeks of
investigation the police had very few leads as to who was
responsible. Police investigators thought that a TV reenactment of
the crime might lead to a citizen providing information that could
help solve it. The police
investigators were right. A caller contacted the police department
after seeing the reenactment. The tip information was enough to lead
the police to the two men who were responsible. Within 72 hours of
the reenactment, the police had solved the murder. This was the
beginning of Crime Stoppers.
Today there are more than 1,150 Crime Stoppers programs worldwide.
Almost one million crimes have been solved since its inception and
over 5 and a half billion dollars worth of stolen property and
narcotics have been seized. Crime Stoppers is a valuable tool
in the fight against crime worldwide!
