Augusta Crime Stoppers mission is to "Encourage the public to send tips to Law Enforcement so they may apprehend violators of the law., with the primary objective of the tri-partite organization, Community, Media and Law Enforcement, Working Together to Stop Crime".

Crime Stoppers began in the 1970s as an innovation to solve a crime that was committed with no witnesses and few leads for police investigators. The main goal is to share with all media Crime Stoppers 800-222-TIPS=8477, so citizens may call the tip line and receive a reward and the promise of anonymity for information leading to an arrest. Detective Greg MacAleese was investigating the murder of a gas station attendant, Michael Carmen, in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1976 when he came up with the idea. At the time, Albuquerque had one of the highest per capita crime rates in the US. Its crime rate has since improved.

Crime Stoppers, globally, has just passed the $10 Billion (USD) mark in the value of things used in crimes recovered from people who have been apprehended by Police, based on information provided anonymously to Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers has assisted in the arrest of more than 800 000 people so far, and helps solve a crime somewhere in the world every 14 minutes! The information would have been supplied to any of the 1.5 million Crime Stoppers in more than 20 countries around the world.

The majority of the people working in Crime Stoppers globally are current or retired Law Enforcement Officers and civilians. People who believe that if we all did a little in stopping crime in our local communities it would compound to make a BIG difference. Our volunteers work tirelessly to collect information from the public to STOP CRIME. The information is provided, anonymously, by telephone, texting and on-line, from people who feel safe in doing so based on the fact that for more than 30 years their identities have and always will be, protected. This is a cornerstone of our operation and over the years other copy-cat organizations have come and gone, but the original and trusted Crime Stoppers organization grows every year.

Augusta Crime Stoppers works with all media and a TV show, Crime Reports and Rewards to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to Law Enforcement Agencies to stop crime.
