I recently attended the Los Angeles Crime Stoppers 2013 Awards Reception event at Universal Studios along with my Despicable Me 2 friends!
The organization works with LA County Sheriff Lee Baca, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, the Mayor’s office, and 44 law enforcement agencies in Los Angeles County and offers the public a secure and anonymous system of reporting tips. They provide financial rewards of up to $1,000 to individuals who provide information leading to an arrest. Rewards become a key incentive to encourage those who would otherwise not offer information related to a crime.
The Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers program (LA Crime Stoppers) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works in partnership with the community, the media and law enforcement to solve crime and create a safer community. All contributions to LA Crime Stoppers are tax deductible.
There are more than 300 Crime Stoppers organizations in the United States and over 1,400 worldwide. This program has proven to be an asset to any community, with over eight hundred and fifty thousand arrests made, over one point two million crimes cleared, and eight billion dollars in property and drugs recovered in the last 33 years.
