This year is the 28th anniversary for National Night Out. That first year, 400 communities in 23 states participated in National Night Out. Nationwide, 2.5 million Americans took part in 1984. The seed had been planted. In subsequent years, participation has grown steadily.

CRIME STOPPERS USA PROGRAMS HAVE PAID $100 MILLION IN TIPS

Crime Stoppers USA has paid out over one hundred million for tips.


The member organizations of Crime Stoppers USA have reached a milestone that has been a long time coming. Sometime over the last few days as our member programs updated their statistics on the www.crimestoppersusa.com website, the tabulation of rewards paid out went over the 100 million dollar mark. While the tally of rewards is significant by itself, what it represents is the sum total of a lot of crimes solved and fugitives arrested through a partnership of law enforcement, media, and community members working together. Thank you for your role in this achievement and your hard work - whether as a board member, member of law enforcement, or a friend of a local crime stoppers program. As members of Crime Stoppers USA, together, we can do great things.
