Fillmore County Sheriff working with Crime Stoppers of Minnesota


Fri, Mar 22nd, 2013
Posted in All Police Reports

Bloomington, MN - The Fillmore County Sheriff is making it easier to attract information about crimes and let the source remain anonymous. The Sheriff’s Office again renewed its partnership with Crime Stoppers of Minnesota which makes available information gathering that preserves the anonymity of the provider of the information and offers a cash reward. By continuing to support use of Crime Stoppers citizens in the area will be reminded that they can help solve crimes and remain safe.

Citizens may be reluctant to give information about a crime or fugitive directly to the authorities, for a variety of reasons, but still want to ‘do the right thing’ by helping solve a crime. They can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously and the information will then be shared with the Fillmore County Sheriff or whichever agency the tip information leads to. Since persons committing a crime in one community often move on, this easy access helps fight crime across the State of Minnesota. In 2012 the number of tips received by Crime Stoppers increased by almost 38% with tips being sent to 131 law enforcement agencies at municipal, county and federal levels.

Working with Crime Stoppers of Minnesota gives the Fillmore County Sheriff a greater reach for collecting information about crimes. These additional methods to attract information helps the Sheriff add efficiency to its investigators’ time, speed solving of cases, and help bring comfort to the victims of a crime.

People with knowledge about a crime or a fugitive can contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS [8477], go online at www.CrimeStoppersMn.org, or text a cell phone message beginning with TIP674, then the message and SEND to CRIMES [274637]. Users of smart phones can download an app called Submit a Tip and also send information. Crime Stoppers accepts tips in any language by phone; in English, Spanish, French or Somali on the Internet; and keeps the identity of the tipster anonymous. If the tip leads to an arrest or charging the tipster may qualify to receive a reward of up to $1,000 and still remain anonymous.

Crime Stoppers of Minnesota is a non-profit organization operating separate and independent of government and law enforcement. Tax deductible donations to fund the operations and payment of rewards can be made at the website [Read the Rest]
