About our Program
Amarillo Crime Stoppers program began in 1979 from the efforts of our City Commission and our Police Department. Our program now operates as an independent 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. The concept has developed into a combination of efforts by local media, businesses, civic and social clubs, law enforcement agencies, and the public. Donations of airtime, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Amarillo Crime Stoppers as an effective tool to fight crime in the area.
Amarillo Crime Stoppers is comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Amarillo Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement to receive information on crimes. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase arrests in our community.
