The San Diego County Crime Stoppers is a citizen-run, non-profit organization that partners with citizens, the news media and law enforcement to solve crimes. It was established in 1984 by a group of concerned citizens seeking a safer community.
Crime Stoppers’ proven strategies are simple. It operates an anonymous tip hotline, (888) 580-TIPS, where citizens can call with information on any felony crime or suspected criminal activity. Crime Stoppers is based on the principle that for every crime committed, someone has information to solve that crime.
“SDCCU is committed to serving its community, and is proud to support such organizations as Crime Stoppers – whose efforts help to create a safer San Diego by providing citizens a safe way to anonymously report crime,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.
San Diego Crime Stoppers is just one of the more than 75 non-profit organizations and community events supported annually by SDCCU.
