Meet Crime Stoppers of Mesa County
This Crime Stoppers program began in 1983 through the efforts of local law enforcement agencies and dedicated community members. The program now operates as an independent organization. The concept has developed into a combination of efforts by local media, businesses, civic and social clubs, law enforcement agencies, and the public. Donations of air time, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Crime Stoppers of Mesa County as an effective tool to fight crime in our beautiful community.
Crime Stoppers of Mesa County has won numerous awards for its work, including: Program of the Year, Greatest Dollar Recovery, Best Crime Clearance and Recovery of Property/Narcotics, Most Cases Cleared, Outstanding Civic Group, and others. We are honored by these awards and work hard every day to continue to deserve them.
