Who Are We?
Flint Area Crime Stoppers was formed in March of 1986 by a group of concerned citizens and a commitment by the Flint Police Department, along with local television, radio and print media. A different "Crime of the Week" is featured each week on television, Radio and the Newspaper.
The Crime Stoppers Tip line is directed to a Flint Police Detective who follows up on the tip information. The Crime Stoppers Board raises the reward money, there is no public tax money involved.
What We Do
Flint Area Crime Stoppers pays rewards up to $1,000 for 'tips' about unsolved felony crimes which lead to arrests or recovery of stolen property.
A 'Crime of the Week' is selected and dramatized for use in the area media Public Service Announcements offering reward money for anonymous tips about the re-enacted crime or any other felony crime.
To insure the caller's anonymity, the caller is given an identification number to be used in collecting his reward. No rewards are paid until the information has been verified.
The Flint Area Crime Stoppers Board of Directors determines the amount of the reward and the method of payment.
