Abilene Crime Stoppers Inc. first started in March of 1981. Since then Crime Stoppers' mission early on was to try and deter crime and to solve some unsolved cases in Abilene.

I remember when it first started it was big news for Abilene. The Crime Stoppers plan was clear, by getting the community to keep an eye out against crime. With help from the Abilene Police Department (APD) and involving the media (print, television, and radio) on a daily and weekly basis.

Abilene citizens have been encouraged to report any criminal activity and or information anonymously. Plus, now Crime Stoppers provides us with photos and a list of names of those criminals that are wanted by the police.

The payback is that Big Country residents that report accurate information that leads to an arrest will be rewarded financially. The money for the rewards is provided by several Abilene area businesses and it continues today.

Abilene Crime Stoppers are looking for these ten individuals. Again, all your information is totally confidential. See below who is WANTED!

To submit a tip anonymously online click here, or call 325-676-TIPS (8477). They do not want your name just your information and you will be paid accordingly.
