Placer County Crime Stoppers Off To A Busy Start For 2009

Placer County Crime Stoppers, which helps solve crimes by offering cash rewards for anonymous tips, is off to a busy start for 2009. The non-profit group has already paid out two rewards for information that led to arrests.

Anyone who wishes to remain anonymous and receive up to $1,000 can call Crime Stoppers toll-free at 800-923-8191. Operators are available 24 hours a day. If that information leads to an arrest or arrests, a cash reward will be paid. All information remains confidential.

Callers are assigned a code number and advised to call back in 7 to 10 days to determine if they are eligible for a reward. The reward amount is determined by the Crime Stoppers board of directors on the basis of the seriousness of the crime and other relevant factors.

Payments are made in cash. All contact with the caller is based solely on the assigned code number.

Remember, crime doesn’t pay, but Crime Stoppers does.
