About our Program

Valley Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization with the mission to deter, reduce, and solve crimes by funding anonymous cash rewards and through partnerships with law enforcement and media within the Central Valley. 
  • We are a sponsorship based nonprofit organization and rely on donations from wonderful sponsors who support the above mission.   100% of sponsor dollars goes toward paying out tips that lead to arrests.
