WHO WE ARE
Crime Stoppers is a nonprofit organization that offers a secure and anonymous process for individuals to provide information about criminal activities to law enforcement. The program first originated in Albuquerque, NM in 1976, and in 1979, Sumter Crimestoppers introduced the first program in South Carolina. Since then, several programs have been established, and presently 12 different Crime Stoppers programs serve 29 of the 46 counties in our state.
In 2006, Crime Stoppers programs across South Carolina joined together to create the South Carolina Crime Stoppers Council. The Council strives to provide training to Crime Stoppers programs on the latest crime trends, technology, and methods for collaborating with communities.
There are 3 ways to submit a Crime Stoppers tip in South Carolina:
Mobile Tip – download free mobile app P3 Tips

Tips leading to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward. Reward amounts vary by Crime Stoppers organization.
