What is Crime Stoppers?

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.

The nationwide 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 half a million crimes and recovered over 3 billion dollars worth of stolen property and narcotics.


How do I report a tip?


You can make an anonymous report of a crime to the Crime Stoppers Line 406-622-3225.  These crimes can be cold cases or new cases, in or out of our county.  But if it is an emergency please dial 911.  Once again you do not have to provide any contact information and for certain tips that lead to a conviction cash rewards are available.


How do I become a member of Crime Stoppers?


The Crime Stoppers board meets at various times during the year to coordinate community events and attend to board business.  We welcome new members who would like to take a more active role in reducing crime in their communities.  Please contact Crime Stopper Liaison Officer, Deputy Justin Smith at 406-622-5451 for more information.
