Get Involved

Crime is a serious issue that affects everyone no matter where they live, work or play. Crime can cost us money through higher costs in stores, or higher insurance rates and fees. But more importantly it has a serious affect on our personal security that can alter our lives. This can happen by being afraid to go out at certain times of the day or night, being afraid to go to certain areas of our community or perhaps locking yourself in your house making you a prisoner of society.

But there are ways to get involved and crime stoppers is one of those ways. Crime Stopper volunteers across the country and the world are out there helping law enforcement solve crimes and putting those that prey on honest citizens behind bars.

There are two different ways to get involved in the Crime Stopper Program.

  1. You can join the Wisconsin State Crime Stopper Board of Directors. They meet approximately six times a year. Their goal is to assist local crime stopper programs around the State of Wisconsin plus work with state legislators and judicial members to promote the crime stopper philosophy. This board also hosts and coordinates the annual conference. Members of the State Board are both citizens and law enforcement officers. If you are interested, contact any of the board members listed on the "WSCS Board Members" webpage.
  2. Another way is to join a local crime stopper board in your community. There are currently 49 programs across the state. This is a great way to get involved in your community and take an active part in working with other positive citizens from your area plus representatives from local law enforcement agencies. If you would like to join a local crime stopper board, check the list of local programs on our "CS Programs in Wisconsin" webpage and make contact with the program nearest you.

Volunteering can be rewarding in many ways as it gives you a feeling of accomplishment in achieving positive goals in your community. We hope you consider joining the many crime fighting men and women across the state by joining Crime Stoppers.
