There are times when crimes aren’t solved quickly. As time passes it might become more difficult to solve them for lack of evidence or of good leads. Maybe citizens witness a crime but they are afraid to contact the authorities for fear of retaliation if their identity is revealed. Other times people might not know whom to trust with their information.
The concept of Crime Stoppers fits these situations. Crime Stoppers provides a way for informants to communicate safely with the police about a specific crime.
