Officer Mike Badger, Crime
Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.
As we get into 2016 CrimeStoppers wants to thank the people of Central Illinois who have supported our
not for profit organization which helped law enforcement take 84 criminals off
the street in 2015. Crime Stoppers took in 1000 tips from the public on
everything from thefts and robberies to homicides and drug trafficking. The
Crime Stoppers Board of Directors approved $19,750 in rewards to tipsters and
we were glad to hand out every single dollar because every reward handed out
meant that a criminal was held accountable for a crime.
If you have any tips about
criminal cases, even if they’re old unsolved crimes, please anonymously call
Crime Stoppers at 788-8427. If an arrest is made we pay up to $1000 cash. You
can also leave a tip on our website, cashfortips.us or you can text a
tip by using the keyword TIP672 and sending the information to CRIMES. We look forward to your help in taking
criminals off the street in 2016.
