“Crime Stoppers” uses anonymous tips and rewards to catch suspects

Circumstances can occur where a person is aware of a crime and a suspect but has reasons to want to remain anonymous. The L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers organization was set up to enable people to make tips about suspects while remaining anonymous and to receive an award of up to $1,000 if a suspect is arrested. Over 2,000 arrests have been made region-wide through the successful program.

In most circumstances, a resident should feel secure reporting a crime and a suspect through normal channels. But on those occasions where a resident feels insecure about identifying a suspect, the City of Lakewood and the Lakewood Sheriff’s Station encourage residents to use the anonymous Crime Stoppers process.
