The City of Leominster is committed to providing a safe and healthy community. Leominster Crime Stoppers enables the citizens of Leominster to become more involved in keeping our schools, neighborhoods, and businesses safe. This program allows individuals to directly report crimes into a secure system anonymously. The local police will then respond to the reports that have been recorded. Specific rewards will be granted for tips leading to arrest or conviction, based on a set monetary schedule determined by Leominster Crime Stoppers Inc.
Crime Stoppers programs are organized as a not-for-profit organization (charity). The civilian community board members provide direction as to the financial and promotional activities of the program. The board members enhance the community involvement aspect, and its function is vital to the program’s success. The Crime Stoppers program is funded by private donations and fundraising efforts. NO TAX DOLLARS are involved. The reward money paid out by the program is from fundraising and donations from concerned citizens and businesses.
A community board of directors, made up of persons from throughout the area, meets on a monthly basis to evaluate arrests and to decide on the size of rewards to be paid, up to $1,000. Rewards are then distributed in a private manner to the Tipster. Tipsters are eligible for rewards up to $1,000, but, despite this, many tipsters choose to not collect these rewards.
Crime Stoppers is comprised of diverse, active
and dedicated community representatives.
