crimestoppers

Crimestoppers is a unique program that brings together business, law enforcement and ordinary citizens to fight crime and makes our community safer.  Crimestoppers utilizes local newspapers, as well as radio and television stations to publicize unsolved crimes and seeks confidential help from citizens to solve these crimes.

The purpose of Crimestoppers of Rockingham County is to work in partnership to further promote and enhance the effectiveness of stopping crime.  Citizens who know information are encouraged to call 336-349-9683.  Confidentiality is assured by assigning callers a code number instead of asking for their name.  This code number is then used for all dealings with the caller.  If the information from a caller leads to an arrest, the recovery of stolen property or the seizure of illegal drugs, the caller is eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.00.  Information received is distributed to law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction for the reported crime.

Crimestoppers is funded through donations from individuals and businesses interested in assisting the Reidsville Police Department and other Law Enforcement Agencies in Rockingham County in its effort to solve criminal cases.  Crimestopper tips save investigative time which increases police efficiency and saves tax dollars.  The final result is a safer community that proactively fights crime.
