History of Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers began in Albuquerque, New Mexico in September of 1976. Members of the local community, in partnership with the media and law enforcement, began an effort to provide crime-solving assistance to law enforcement.

A cash reward was offered to anonymous persons who telephone the Crime Stoppers hot line with information which led to the arrest and indictment of the person(s) responsible for felony offenses.

Crime Stoppers in Montgomery County

In November of 2013, Sheriff Tommy Gage appointed Deputy Steven Squier to the postition of Crime Stoppers Coordinator. Deputy Squier is a liason for both the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and the Crime Stoppers Board of Directors.

The program contracts with a Crime Stoppers call taking program which allows the tip line to be answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by Crime Stoppers call takers. The coordinator handles each and every tip that is called into Crime Stoppers. They corroborate information, research, assemble the tip, direct the information to the appropriate agency, follow-up with the agency on the tip/arrest information, and prepare successful tips for reward distribution.

How is anonymity maintained?

Many people including law enforcement officers and citizens alike wonder:

“How does Crime Stoppers work?”
“Can I really get a reward without anyone knowing who I am?”

The best way to answer these questions is to lay out our operating procedure for you. Montgomery County Crime Stoppers has two telephone lines set-up for incoming calls. A local administrative/office line and an 800 tip line. There is no caller ID nor line recorder set on these lines. No other law enforcement office nor officer has access to answering these lines. The Crime Stoppers office and files are kept secured and cannot be accessed by anyone other than the Crime Stoppers Coordinator or Assistant. The public has access to the Crime Stoppers Coordinator by telephone or by walk-in. These precautions are necessary to protect the anonymity of the Crime Stoppers caller and the confidentiality of the information as set-up in the Texas Government Code, Code of Criminal Procedure and Texas Penal Code.
