CRIME STOPPERS 

The Silent Witness Crime Stoppers program combines the efforts of a private organization operated by volunteers with those of city and county law enforcement agencies to solve crimes in Cheyenne. 

The program was begun in Cheyenne in 1982 after a police staff officer learned of the Crime Stoppers program in Albuquerque. This program pays rewards to citizens whose anonymous tips assist law enforcement in solving area crimes. 

Originally 100 businesses, organizations and individuals contributed funds to start Silent Witness of Cheyenne, Inc. Many continue to do so today; without private donations Silent Witness could not operate, since no public monies are provided. 

The local board is composed of twenty members representing business, government, education and the news media in addition to law enforcement. The board is responsible for fund raising and paying rewards as well as serving as a liaison between law enforcement and the community. The board has the backing of various civic organizations. 

Silent Witness Crime Stoppers serves the community as a whole by enabling crimes to be solved which might not otherwise be solved without the information provided to law enforcement by private citizens. The community benefits through the return of stolen property as well as by the arrest and incarceration of burglars, drug dealers and other criminals. Additionally, citizens are encouraged to be aware of possible illegal activities in their neighborhoods. 

Silent Witness Crime Stoppers is a deterrent to crime in Cheyenne, making the city a better place in which to live.
