About Our Program

Our Mission
Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa is a non-profit organization that provides the public in Central Iowa financial incentives to anonymously assist in solving crime.

Our Vision
Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa remains a useful tool for law enforcement to gather critical information to assist in solving crimes.

How It Started
Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa began in 1984 in West Des Moines and quickly spread throughout central Iowa. Donations of airtime, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Crime Stoppers as an effective tool to fight crime in the area.

Crime Stoppers is a non profit organization. A civilian community board of directors provides direction. The reward money paid out by he program is from the
fund raising and donations from concerned citizens and businesses.

Does Crime Stoppers Work?
The answer is quite simply 'yes'. Since the start of Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa many calls have been received resulting in hundreds of arrests and recovery of substantial amounts of property. Calls have included information about murder, robbery, rape, assaults, drug and firearm offenses.
