Crime Stoppers to expand to all of Linn County

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- The Crime Stoppers program which is so successful in Cedar Rapids is expanding to include all of Linn County.

Crime Stoppers is a privately-funded partnership between law enforcement and volunteers from communities.

Law enforcement receives and investigates tips, while the volunteers raise reward money and decide how much should be given out.

Crime Stoppers says it hopes to have the program active by the end of the month.

Some city officials say the program will help make rural towns safer.
