Amarillo Crime Stoppers & Student Crime Stoppers are non-profit organizations that are operated by separate citizen’s Board of Directors. The coordinators run the day-to-day operations. Amarillo Crime Stoppers and Student Crime Stoppers take anonymous tips on unsolved crimes and the location of wanted fugitives. If the information leads to an arrest we pay a cash reward of up to $1000. Monies for these programs is earned through fund raising, private donations, and court ordered probation fees. We do not receive money from the Amarillo Police Department budget or from the City of Amarillo. We guarantee that the caller remains anonymous. Once the information is given the caller receives a code name that is used to monitor the case progress.
