Crime Stoppers Raising Money with ‘Back the Blue’ Shirts & Gun Raffle

ASHEBORO N.C. – Randolph County Crime Stoppers is raising money to help prevent crime and pay rewards for tips. Here is how you can help.

Since 1983 Randolph County Crime Stoppers has been helping citizens and law enforcement communicate to help solve crimes and make a safer community. What is less known is that as a non-profit organization the organization does not receive tax money from any County or Municipal governments. All the money used to run the organization, including paying rewards for tips, comes from the community through donations and fund-raising activities.

Through partnerships with all Randolph County law enforcement agencies, Randolph County Crime Stoppers provides ways for citizens to submit anonymous crime tips and information. Those tips are passed on to law enforcement who investigate them. Cash rewards are paid to anonymous tip providers who offer information of criminal activity that leads to an arrest for a criminal offense, recovery of stolen property, locate missing persons, seizures of illegal narcotics, clearance of homicide cases or provide closure of cold cases.

You can submit a tip anonymously through the new P-3 program either through the app or online, as well as by calling the tip hotline at 336-67-CRIME (336-672-7463).

Back The Blue T-Shirts

‘Back the Blue’ t-shirts are on sale now in sizes from Small to XXL for $15 or two t-shirts for $25.

To order a shirt you can send Randolph County Crime Stoppers a message on Facebook or look for their tent at local events.

All proceeds going towards helping to prevent crime and paying for tip rewards that solve old and new cases.
