September spotlights Crime Stoppers
September is Crime Stoppers Month. The more than 1,000 Crime Stoppers programs around the world are holding events to kick off September as Crime Stoppers Month.
Crime Stoppers now operates in some 26 countries around the world including over 350 local Crime Stoppers programs throughout the United States that have a common goal to resolve crime through anonymous tips. Crime Stoppers USA is a membership driven organization providing oversight and services to local Crime Stoppers programs.
“Our focus today remains similar to when the Crime Stoppers started in 1976, and that is to make our communities safer and more secure for everyone,” stated K. Scott Abrams, Chairman of Crime Stoppers USA. “Crime Stoppers brings together businesses, citizens, law enforcement and the media to combat crime. It is important for the criminal element to know members of the community are watching and reporting their activities.”
