"Working Together to Solve Crime" Crime Stoppers International Mission
The purpose of Crime Stoppers is to help the police solve crimes through the offer of cash rewards and anonymity for citizens for the information regarding crimes. Through a 24-hour hotline direct to the police department, we accept calls from all over the City of Jackson and Madison County from men, women and children of all ages. Visit or link to the official JACKSON CRIMESTOPERS Site now.
If you have information regarding a crime, you can call Crime Stoppers @ (731)424-8477 or (888)781-8477 to report it without the fear of being known. Crime Stoppers does not have caller ID, and we do not ask for names. Instead the anonymous caller is given a 4-digit code to use whenever calling to give more details or after an arrest has been made and to receive their reward. The call is then entered into the system, printed out and passed on to the appropriate department where it is processed. There may be several persons calling on the same incident, but the person who can give the most timely and accurate details will be the one to receive a reward after the arrest has been made.
Crime Stoppers was formed in the early 80's in Jackson/Madison County to help reduce the criminal element. Crime Stoppers consist of no "members." It is a non-profit organization that solicits money for rewards through the annual golf fundraiser in May, the receipt of monetary donations for metal street signs for businesses, and letters throughout the year. The donations are tax-deductible and used strictly for solving crimes in Madison County. Crime Stoppers has a Board of Directors that meets nine times during the year to make sure that matters are handled correctly and to take care of important decisions.
Crime Stoppers deals with unsolved felony crime and fugitive wanted cases. Crime Stoppers is involved in the middle and high schools of this area, helping to prevent the spread of drugs to the students through a Weapons/Drugs Watch Program. Students can make reports to the School Resource Officer or Principal.
Since Crime Stoppers began in 1983, $2,218,656 in property has been recovered and 2,058 arrests have been made. $24,000 was raised this year with the annual Crime Stoppers Golf Tournament. Property has been recovered this year in the amount of $19,000.
