Police often need the public’s help to solve crimes, so the Castle Rock Police Department has partnered with the Denver Metro Crime Stoppers program.
As part of the Crime Stoppers program, witnesses and others with information can receive a monetary award, if their tips lead to an arrest and charges filed against a suspect, while remaining anonymous. Awards range from $50 - $2,000, but higher awards have been made to tipsters providing assistance in more serious crime categories.
Total awards since Denver Metro Crime Stoppers formed in 1981 equal more than $840,000 (as of December 2011). Tips provided to Crime Stoppers have resulted in more than 1,800 arrests and $2 million in returned property.
Crime Stoppers’ media partners are 9News and KYGO 98.5 FM. Crime Stoppers is supported entirely by contributions from businesses, foundations and the public. No tax dollars are expended for awards, publicity or operating costs.
