Southern Ohio Crime Stoppers provides a means for citizens of Southern Ohio to provide information to law enforcement while remaining anonymous. As a vital three-way link between law enforcement, the media, and the general public, Crime Stoppers provides opportunities to solve homicides, rapes, burglaries and other serious crimes.
Each week, details of an unsolved crime are to be featured as a “Crime of the Week” on Cable Channel 2, the Clear Channel Chillicothe Radio stations, Chillicothe Gazette along with television stations our of Columbus Channel 4, 6 & 10.
The Crime Stoppers’ tipster line, 773-TIPS, is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. We do not use Caller ID or record any telephone conversations. The call goes to a tipster phone line in Canada. Therefore there is no way to be traced and remain totally anonymous. Tips, which result in the arrest and/or the indictment of person(s) responsible for crimes aired as Crime of the Week, are eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
Funding for Crime Stoppers tip reward payments comes from private donations made by concerned citizens and businesses in Southern Ohio. If you wish to become a member, please complete the Membership Application.
Citizen involvement is the key to crime solving. With your participation, Crime Stoppers will be an effective crime-fighting tool in Southern Ohio.
