HISTORY OF OUR LOCAL CRIME STOPPERS
On June 11, 1996, Crime Stoppers of Volusia & Flagler Counties was formed by members of the Daytona Beach Rotary Club following the murder of one of their members in his own home during a robbery. Shocked and dismayed, citizens united to form Crime Stoppers as a local organization dedicated to taking criminals off the street, thus making our community a safer place for all of its law abiding citizens. The local Crime Stoppers expanded to include the whole 7th Judicial Circuit, which includes Volusia, Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns Counties, in late 2004 and was renamed to Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida.
ABOUT CRIME STOPPERS OF NORTHEAST FLORIDA
Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida, Inc. is a unique community program, operated and administrated by citizens through a Board of Directors. It is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer civilian organization, supported solely on contributions from private citizens, social and civic groups, and local businesses. Over 1,000 programs have been instituted worldwide. There are three major components of the Crime Stoppers program.
Concerned local citizens comprise the organization's Board of Directors. The Board develops policies, coordinates with police agencies and news media, manages fund-raising activities, and decides the amount and method of reward payments.
Caller tips are distributed to the appropriate law enforcement agency for investigation.
The media's principal role is to serve as a link between law enforcement and the public. Crimes for which law enforcement agencies need citizen input are publicized in newspapers, radio, and television announcements.
