What is the Crime Stoppers program?

Crime Stoppers is a program that involves the public, the media, and the police in the fight against crime. Unsolved crimes will be selected periodically and advertised using the news media.

The Greater Burlington Area chapter of Crime Stoppers was organized in 1993 and serves Burlington, West Burlington, and Des Moines County. Crime Stoppers continues to be a very valuable tool for law enforcement.
