Delaware Crime Stoppers is a Non-Profit Organization with a Federal Tax Exempt Status. Delaware Crime Stoppers is recognized by the Delaware Better Business Bureau and the United Way of Delaware.

Delaware Crime Stoppers receives funds from the State of Delaware, the Attorney General's SLEAF fund, and by raising 20% of their budget with fundraising activities and contributions.

Delaware Crime Stopper's major goal is to work with every law enforcement agency in the State of Delaware, in an effort to collect criminal information that will result in arrests and result in the solving of cases.

Delaware Crime Stoppers operates a 1-800-TIP-3333 Phone Line and a Cell Phone *TIPS line, and encourages people with information about a crime or criminal to call. The Hot Lines are toll free from any place in Delaware and Delaware Crime Stoppers makes two guarantees: 1. We will pay up to $1,000 in Cash Reward if the information in the Tip is substantial in an arrest being able to be made and,  2. You will not have to identify yourself when you call.

As of December 2004, Delaware Crime Stoppers has paid out in excess of $175,000.00 dollars in rewards. As a result of calls to Delaware Crime Stoppers, over 2000 arrests have occurred and over $3,000,000.00 in stolen property and drugs have been seized/or recovered.

Delaware Crime Stoppers has advertising posters in every public high school in Delaware. The theme, Drugs and Guns in School, That's Not Cool. Since 1997,  calls to our Hot Line in regard to School problems have resulted in several cases being solved. As a result of calls from our high schools, a serious arson was solved and drugs and weapons have been removed from our schools.  We are now going to the Private and Middle Schools.

Delaware Crime Stoppers hosts a "Friends of Law and Order Golf Tournament" and proceeds go to provide college scholarships for three Del. Tech. students who want to become police officers.

Delaware Crime Stoppers hosts three events every year, and we are always looking for participants and sponsors.

  1. Our 1st function is the Friends of Law and Order Golf Tournament--which will be played on April 28, 2006 at Brantwood Country Club. 1Pm Tee Off.

  3. Our Dinner, Dance and Auction, held in late Oct of each year.  Already on hand--signed Footballs, Baseballs, framed and signed celebrity photos, and much much more--NASCAR signed items as well.
