25th Year of Taking Criminals Off the Streets


Kenosha Area Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization of citizens against crime. Crime Stoppers offers cash rewards of up to $1000 to anyone furnishing anonymous information that leads to the arrest of criminals, including those committing serious felony crimes, and fugitives. Information is received through anonymous tips via our phone secure phone lines at (262) 656-7333 or (800) 807-TIPS (8477).  Crime Stoppers tip lines are answered by professional call takers in Kenosha City/County Joint Services Records Division. Each caller is assigned a code number for the purpose of insuring anonymity. 

Why Do We Need Crime Stoppers?

Crime Stoppers is based on the principal that "someone other than the criminal has information that can solve a crime" and was created to combat the three major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information:

  • Fear of REPRISAL.
  • An attitude of APATHY
  • Reluctance to get INVOLVED.                                                                  

Crime Stoppers resolves these problems by:                  

  • Offering ANONYMITY to people who provide information about crimes.
  • Paying REWARDS when the information supplied leads to arrest.
