Law Enforcement understands there are certain crimes they cannot solve without information from the public. Therefore, the Lake County Crimes Stoppers acts as a liaison between citizens who have information and wish to remain anonymous and Law Enforcement. The Lake County Crime Stoppers program provides complete anonymity in that callers are not asked their name and their calls are not traced or recorded. Instead of their name, a caller is provided with a personal code number which is then used to pay cash rewards up to $1,000.00 if their information leads to an arrest.
Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number and Web Tips to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime.
Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender.
