Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
Crime Stoppers provides a Telephone Number, Web Tips and a Free App "P3tips" to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime.
Crime Stoppers also oversees the Gun Stoppers program. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $500 cash reward to anyone who notifies the tip line of an illegal weapon, and that tip leads to an arrest and/or confiscation of an illegal gun by the Topeka Police Department (TPD) or Shawnee County Sheriff’s Department (SSO). To qualify as an illegal weapon, the firearm must either be possessed illegally and/or illegal on its face.
