Crime Stoppers of Houston's mission is to solve and prevent serious crime in the Greater Houston area in partnership with citizens, media and the criminal justice system.
The original Crime Stoppers program was created in 1976 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Citizens were encouraged to call in crime tips and promised anonymity and cash rewards. Crime Stoppers of Houston was established in 1981 by a group of local business owners responding to the growing crime rate. Our program quickly became a world leader in helping law enforcement solve and prevent felony crime.
Crime Stoppers of Houston operates 713-222-TIPS, a telephone tip line. Information about criminal activity is received and transferred to law enforcement for immediate action. Callers are promised anonymity and cash rewards of up to $5,000 in exchange for their accurate crime tips. Our organization provides a safe forum for citizens to report crime in their neighborhoods without the fear of retaliation. We are the eyes and ears of law enforcement in the community.
