Oklahoma City Crime Stoppers was organized in July 1979 so the citizens would have a way to give information to the police department, remain anonymous and receive a reward. Since then over 3,800 criminals have gone to jail as a result of anonymous tips received on the Crime Stoppers Hot Line. We are funded by citizens who make tax deductible donations to the reward fund. No tax payer dollars are used to pay rewards, and management of the programs is done entirely by unpaid volunteers.
Crimes are reported on television, radio and newspapers. This publicity has led Oklahoma City Crime Stoppers to gain top status among the organizations across the United States with over 7,100 crimes cleared and over $410,000 paid out in rewards, and 116,000 phone calls received. In the last twelve years $10 million in property has been recovered and returned to citizens and over $7 million in drugs seized from the streets of Oklahoma City.
Killers, armed robbers, rapist and burglars – Crime Stoppers paid rewards for the information that helped identify or catch them, and in the cases referred to police by the Crime Stoppers Hot Line – 99% of the arrested suspects were convicted or entered guilty pleas. All thanks go out to the anonymous callers giving Crime Stoppers the leads!
If you would like to have a part in helping our community, please call our Hot Line at (405) 235-7300 or 1-800-632-TIPS if you have any information regarding crimes committed. Your call will remain anonymous with no pressure to reveal your identity. If an arrest is made in result of your call, you may be eligible to receive a reward!
