Each year, the month of January is identified as Crime Stoppers Month to raise awareness of Crime Stoppers’ successes and to inspire others to become involved. Crime Stoppers has created an effective method for solving crimes and helping citizens take back control of their neighborhoods.
Since 1981, 1.4 million tips have resulted in nearly 200,000 suspects arrested and more than $1.4 billion recovered in property and narcotics. In addition to safer communities, Crime Stoppers has also helped create safer schools. In 2014, more than 150 weapons and $300,000 in illegal drugs were removed from Texas Schools.
