About our Program

This Crime Stoppers Program began in 1985 from the efforts of Indianapolis Police Department and city leaders. Our Program now operates as an independent organization. The concept has developed into a combination of efforts by local media, businesses, civic and social clubs, law enforcement agencies, and the public. Donations of air time, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Crime Stoppers as an effective tool to fight crime in the area.

Donor Privacy Policy- We will not sell, trade or share a donor's personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.

Mission Statement

Crime Stoppers is comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement to receive information on crimes. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase arrests in our community.
