Through diverse community outreach programs across Southeastern Michigan, we work to build stronger, safer communities by encouraging people to actively embrace social responsibility. Crime Stoppers of Michigan provides anonymous crime reporting through 1-800-SPEAK UP, creating a safe and secure alternative to silence.
Crime Stoppers of Michigan proudly partners with FOX 2, Channel 7, Channel 4, WWJ Newsradio, Mlive, The Monroe Evening News, The Macomb Daily, The Oakland Press and others. With the help of our media partners, we publicize unsolved crimes and wanted fugitive cases to the public via television, print, billboard and online media, asking that they call 1-800-SPEAK UP with any information that they have.
Law Enforcement Partnerships
We work closely with law enforcement partners across our seven counties in Michigan, publicizing information on unsolved cases, providing valuable crime solving tools and resources, and, of course, passing along critical tipster information to the appropriate law enforcement departments.
Crime Stoppers works with all Michigan state prisons, in addition to county jails and parole offices within our seven county service area, to educate and encourage inmates and parolees about calling Crime Stoppers regarding unsolved crimes. Information is provided through television, signage, and electronic mail kiosks.
Project Safe Campus
Our K-12 crime prevention program works with student council groups to engage and empower students to help keep their friends and classmates safe. Students are encouraged to look out for one another by calling Crime Stoppers, safely and anonymously, with any information regarding trouble brewing at school or within their neighborhoods in exchange for a $100 cash reward.
Project Good Samaritan
Religious leaders from more than 130 faith-based partners are working together to encourage their congregations to speak out with information they have about criminal activity by calling Crime Stoppers. The program aims to strengthen local communities through the power of grass roots neighborhood efforts.
Social Media Campaigns
We actively utilize popular social media outlets including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in engaging the public to call Crime Stoppers with information regarding unsolved criminal cases and wanted fugitives
Volunteer Speakers Bureau
Each month, our volunteers visit numerous community meetings and events, providing information regarding Crime Stoppers’ mission and sharing how each individual person has the power to make a big difference in their neighborhood.
We provide families of crime victims with the ability to reach out to the public for help in solving their loved one’s case with the use of televised press conferences, posters, door hangers, billboards, website, and social media.
