About Us

Our program is civilian-run and organized, with a police advisor from every member police agency, including the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department.

When a call is received by Crime Stoppers, it is logged with the date, time and a brief summary of the caller’s information. Each caller is given a secret code number which is used for all follow-up contact. If the caller’s information results in the arrest and the filing of a criminal charge against a suspected criminal offender or the apprehension of a fugitive, arrangements will be made so that the person can receive a CASH reward of up to $1000 and still remain anonymous. 

The amount of the reward is determined, post-arrest, by the civilian board, after examining the given facts of the case. Waukesha County District Attorney Sue Opper endorses this program, and it currently has 28 communities as members.

How you can help: If you have information about a crime, submit an anonymous tip. You can also support Crime Stoppers by making a donation that helps fund our cash rewards.

Our Mission: to solve and prevent crimes in our area by working with Waukesha-area residents, local law enforcement agencies, and media partners.
