Over the past 20 years, something's been happening in the greater Fayetteville area to help stem the tide of crime.
More people are getting involved!
Since we initiated the Fayetteville / Cumberland Crimestoppers organization, citizens' tips have led to more than 4,125 arrests, 67 homicides solved, and the recovery of millions of dollars in drugs and stolen property.
Crimestoppers is a proven, effective method of helping law enforcement authorities bring criminals to justice. Nationwide, the conviction rate for arrests made with the assistance of Crimestopper tips is more than 98%. It works because citizens provide the police with information that can lead to the arrest and conviction of crime offenders.
There are two important aspects of this unique program. First, it provides an incentive for people with the information to come forth by offering cash rewards. In addition, Crimestoppers protects their safety by assuring the complete anonymity of anyone who calls with a tip.
Locally, Fayetteville / Cumberland Crimestoppers, Inc. is a community program operated by citizens like you, who want to take an active role in fighting crime in our area. Our 15-member Board of Directors administers the Crimestoppers program, in cooperation with the Fayetteville Police Department, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, Spring Lake and Hope Mills Police Departments.
Crimestoppers is wholly supported by your donations - of money, time, goods and services. These donations come from individuals, businesses, professional associations, clubs and social groups as well as the Fayetteville Police Department.
Your monetary contributions are especially vital to Crimestoppers because they fund the cash reward incentives. In fact, since the Fayetteville / Cumberland program began, we've awarded more than $312,000.00 to people whose tips were instrumental in solving crimes and getting back property worth millions of dollars. Please help us continue this worthwhile program. Help us gather the clues that lead to the arrest and conviction of criminals - and keep them from committing more crimes.
