Structure and Funding of Crime Stoppers
Capital Region Crime Stopper Programs is organized as a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization. A civilian community board of directors provides direction regarding the financial and promotional activities of the program. The board of directors enhances the community involvement aspect, and its function is vital to the program's success.
The Crime Stoppers program is funded by private donations and fundraising. NO TAX DOLLARS are involved. The reward money paid out by the program is generated by the fundraising efforts and donations from concerned citizens and businesses.
A community board of directors, made up of individuals from throughout the Capital Region, meets regularly to evaluate arrests and to decide on the size of rewards to be paid, up to $1,500. Rewards are then distributed in a private manner to the callers.
