Crime Stoppers began in Albuquerque, New Mexico in September of 1976.  Members of the local community, in partnership with the media and law enforcement, began an effort to provide crime-solving assistance to law enforcement.

A cash reward was offered to anonymous persons who telephoned the Crime Stoppers hot line with information which led to the arrest and indictment of the person(s) responsible for felony offenses.

The Crime Stoppers program has enjoyed great success boasting an average conviction rate of 95% on cases solved by Crime Stoppers' tips.  The Crime Stoppers programs worldwide have solved over a million crimes and recovered $3 billion worth of stolen property and narcotics.

Today, there are over 1,000 Crime Stoppers programs in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, Bahamas, British West Indies, Micronesia, and other nations.
