About our Program

Parker County Crime Stoppers Program began in 1987 from the efforts of our local citizens along with Weatherford Police Department and Parker County Sheriff Department. Our Program now operates as an independent organization. The concept has developed into a combination of efforts by local media, businesses, civic and social clubs, law enforcement agencies, and the public. Donations of airtime, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Crime Stoppers as an effective tool to fight crime in the area.

Mission Statement

Crime Stoppers is comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement to receive information on crimes. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase arrests in our community.

Funding of Crime Stoppers

Parker County Crime Stoppers is a 501(c)(3) organization, and depends on financial support from individuals, businesses, and foundations within our community.  Grants, private donations, and fund raising support the operation of the Program and the Program’s operation of Parker County Crime Stoppers.   Fees paid by convicted offenders placed on community supervision (i.e.; probation) are used to pay rewards — rewards paid for information that helps identify and capture criminals comes from the fees paid by criminals.  Additionally, a judge may order a convicted offender to repay Crime Stoppers for a reward paid for information that led to the offender’s capture.
