Jacksonville/Onslow County Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers

The Jacksonville/Onslow County Crime Stoppers program was established in April 2000. Crime Stoppers, an internationally recognized program created during the 1970's to support local law enforcement is a community-based organization built upon a threefold partnership between law enforcement agencies, the media, and private citizens. Historically, Crime Stopper programs have proven to be extremely cost effective weapons in the arsenal against crime by maintaining a 90% conviction rate from leads received.

Jacksonville/Onslow County Crime Stoppers program functions by publicizing facts regarding unsolved crimes in the local media and requesting that citizens with any information about those crimes (or any other crime) call a 24-hour hotline number (910) 938-3273. The caller is provided with a guarantee of anonymity and incentive for cash rewards up to $2,500.00 if the information leads to an arrest or indictment.

The Jacksonville/Onslow County Crime Stoppers program operates almost entirely on private donations which are fully tax deductible. Donations are greatly appreciated and can make a positive difference in our community. Donations may be made to:
