A city or county only has so many police officers available at any given time, and as a result criminals have a better than average chance to beat the system. That's where you come in. The citizens need to keep an eye out and report what looks suspicious, even if it turns out not to be.

Local law enforcement is there for you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, but they can use your help in fighting crime. Remember, if you have information regarding a crime, call the Crime Stopper Hotline at 228-4474. You can also submit a tip via the web. Web Tips is just another way for an individual to submit anonymous information to Crime Stoppers. To send a Web Tip, log on to quincycrimestoppers.com and click on submit at the top of the page.

You will never have to give your name and you might be eligible to receive a cash reward for your information. Some rewards can total nearly $1000 depending on the information provided. Remember, Crime Stoppers is only as good as you make it.
