About CrimeStoppers

CrimeStoppers of Mid-Michigan's Board is writing to remind you about this vital program for our community and to ask for your help. In association with Newscenter 6, CrimeStoppers of Mid-Michigan publicizes felony crimes and asks for information from citizen witnesses to lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.

Callers can remain anonymous since the phone line, 517-483-7867 (483-STOP) is not connect to caller ID and witnesses are assigned coded identity numbers. For those who give information leading to an arrest, rewards of up to $1,000 can be awarded. Incoming information is monitored by the Lansing Police Department during normal working hours, and passed along to the appropriate law enforcement agency.

Crime Stoppers has been successful since it began in 1989, assisting local law enforcement agencies in our community's fight against crime.
