THE HISTORY BEHIND CRIME STOPPERS GLOBAL SOLUTIONS
Crime Stoppers is a citizen-driven crime prevention and reporting initiative that began in the U.S. in 1976. The effort has expanded globally to give citizens the means to anonymously provide crime tips to law enforcement for the purposes of investigating and prosecuting crimes in their community.
Crime Stoppers Global Solutions (CSGS) had its beginnings with the Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound and former and current board members of Crime Stoppers USA who saw a need for a program to stop international crime at its source. The CSGS was designed with a top down structure unlike Crime Stoppers USA which is an umbrella organization for its members. CSGS is comprised of board members which have had extensive background in Crime Stoppers and are experts in anonymous tip taking as well as those with no experience in Crime Stoppers but have experience in other areas such as international law enforcement, US governmental affairs, international governmental affairs, business, finance and other disciplines.
Today CSGS works with governments and law enforcement globally to bring anonymous tip taking to other countries.
