528-CASH. (2274)

Chapman says without full citizen involvement,
crime issue will never go away.

The CrimeStoppers program SeniorBsafe is a model program for complementing police work and the ubiquitous tips line, 528-CASH, according to a news story in the wake of a fatal shooting of a Memphis policewoman, and the massacre of school children in Connecticut.

The woman wore a large blue apron over her work uniform when she walked into the bank to rob it. A camera caught her face as well as her outfit. She was handed a considerable amount of money in a bag containing an exploding
red ink capsule.

Whichever of those details caught someone’s attention — her face, her clothes, the ink she’s couldn’t remove — the person called a tip to CrimeStoppers, and an arrest was made.

This is how CrimeStoppers has been able to solve up to two felony crimes a day for almost 30 years.

NEW! Report a tip 3 ways. Citizens can help solve crimes by sending a text message or a tip on the web. * read on *
