Crimestoppers

Show Summary

Crimestoppers is a TV program that allows citizens to report crimes anonymously and without having to have contact with the usual emergency services. By broadcasting CCTV images, reenacted footage of crimes and images of perpetrators, Crimestoppers attracts attention and new witnesses from the wider public. By doing this separately from the police force, Crime Stoppers allow members of the public to give information without fear of repercussions. Crimestoppers began in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1975, when a young girl was fatally shot. The re-enactment and promise of a $1000 reward led to a succesful arrest and conviction of the perperator. Today, the program is broadcast in the USA, UK and Australia to form Crimestoppers international, an organization that proactively helps anti-crime agencies find those who have committed crimes and help lead to their arrest. Since its launch, Crimestoppers has seen over half a million arrests in the USA alone, as well as over $4 billion in recovered property.
