Pikes Peak Crime Stoppers' success is based on a simple assumption: Someone other than the criminal has information about a crime. We utilize television, radio, newspapers, billboards, and advertising publications to seek the help of local citizens by asking them to report information about a crime. They can do this by calling 634-STOP (634-7867). Callers are assured of complete anonymity and, if their information results in an arrest and conviction, they will receive a cash award.
Since its inception in 1981, Pikes Peak Crime Stoppers tips have resulted in over 3,700 felony arrests leading to the recovery of over $10,000,000 in property, narcotics and cash. Pikes Peak Crime Stoppers is especially successful in the arrest of those who commit crimes against retailers, financial institutions and other types of business.
The Crime Stoppers program is the only agency providing an interface between law enforcement agencies and citizens who have knowledge of serious crimes and the identities or whereabouts of wanted felons or persons suspected of serious crimes.
Pikes Peak Crime Stoppers is an asset to law enforcement agencies across the area.
During his time as Police Chief Peter Carey said, “The Colorado Springs Police Department relies on the efforts of our local Crime Stoppers to keep the flow of information coming”.
Originally tax payer supported, but today due to cutbacks in city budget, Pikes Peak Crime Stoppers operates as a 501c3 tax exempt organization and is staffed almost entirely by volunteers and is supported by donations from individuals and businesses who recognize that a donation to Crime Stoppers is an investment in their own safety and security.
