MKE Crime Stoppers Program

MILWAUKEE, WI – On Tuesday, October 15, 2019, Milwaukee Crime Stoppers, a program designed to partner with the community in order to combat crime in the city, was  launched.  The launch was held at 1:00 pm in the City Hall Rotunda, 200 E. Wells Street. Partners involved in the Crime Stoppers initiative are city leaders and departments – Alderwoman Chantia Lewis of the 9th Aldermanic District, Mayor Tom Barrett, the City of Milwaukee Health Department (MHD), the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD), the City of Milwaukee District Attorney’s Office, CBS 58 News, Hupy and Abraham, Safe and Sound, Program the Parks, and We Got This.  This partnership against crime is an independent, non-profit organization that offers cash rewards up to $1,000 to anyone who provides anonymous information that leads to the arrest of criminals, including those committing serious felony crimes, and fugitives.  Information is received through an anonymous, secured tip line or secure web connection manned by a professional coordinator. “We stand with community partners that are committed to ensuring that victims of crime and violence receive the justice they deserve,” said Office of Violence Prevention Director Reggie Moore. Media are encouraged to attend.  For more information on Milwaukee Crime Stoppers please see the attached brochure.
