About our Program

CrimeStoppers Honolulu - CrimeStoppers Honolulu, Inc was formed in February 1981 as a registered 501 (c) 3 nonprofit corporation.  It is governed by a Board of Directors made up of about 15-20 unpaid volunteers.  The Board is diverse and made up of retired police officials, business leaders, professional experts and community members. The Board gives freely of their time because they believe this program makes a difference in creating a safer community.

The program operates in partnership with the Honolulu Police Department, the media, and the community.  We strive to support a network all working to reduce crime and improve the quality of life in our community.
 
A dedicated group of volunteers help to take phone calls and issue tip numbers to identify the caller when they call back.  Information can also be reported to us through a similar automated process over the internet with the Web Tips form.

Student CrimeStoppers - We created Student CrimeStoppers to expand our community outreach in March 1997.  This program aids law enforcement and school officials in reducing criminal activity and related problems in schools, on school grounds, and in the nearby communities.  We have responded to situations involving the possession of illegal drugs and weapons, and destruction of property.  We work to make our schools a safer place for our children.

Animal CrimeStoppers - We created Animal CrimeStoppers in partnership with the Hawaiian Humane Society in 2001.  We believe there is a correlation between violence against animals and potential violence toward people.  We work together with the Hawaiian Humane Society on calls regarding cruelty and mistreatment of animals, because animals depend on humans for their well-being.  The focus of this program is to educate the public about animal cruelty as well as to identify, investigate and arrest offenders through the use of anonymous tips.

Mission Statement

We make our community and schools safer by soliciting anonymous information helpful to law enforcement and school administrators.
