Crime Stoppers USVI empowers you to make your neighborhoods safer by reporting information while remaining totally anonymous. If you know something, say something, as law enforcement needs to know what you know.
We understand that some people are still skeptical as to how we keep you anonymous. To learn how we do this, visit www.CrimeStoppersUSVI.org and click on How It Works.
Crime Stoppers USVI is a local chapter of an international program of nonprofit organizations led by citizens against crime.
Some Crime Stoppers programs offer cash rewards of up to $1,000 to persons providing anonymous information that leads to the arrest of criminals and fugitives. Here in the territory, we offer rewards up to $2,500.
Information is received through anonymous tips that Crime Stoppers USVI receives through a secure phone line or through a secure web connection manned by a professional program coordinator. Each tipster is assigned a code number for the purpose of ensuring anonymity.
Crime Stoppers USVI is based on the principle that someone other than the criminal has information that can solve a crime.
Crime Stoppers was created to combat the three major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information: 1. fear of reprisal (criminal revenge); 2. an attitude of apathy (lack of concern or indifference); and 3. a reluctance (or unwillingness) to get involved.
Crime Stoppers USVI resolves these problems by offering anonymity and paying cash rewards when the information supplied leads to an arrest or recovery of property. To date, no tipsters have ever had their identity revealed due to a fault in the Crime Stoppers system.
Crime Stoppers does not receive any grant money or government funding. We rely on tax-deductible donations from the community. To donate, visit www.CrimeStoppersUSVI.org and click on Support Us.
