About our Program

Stateline Area Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization funded entirely through donations and court ordered fines. We are certified by the Illinois State Crime Stoppers Association.


The Board of Directors are made up of concerned citizens of Stephenson County who oversee the operation of the program. The responsibility for establishing policy, raising funds and for controlling the amount of reward payments rests with the Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors approves the rewards to be paid based on the information presented by the law enforcement coordinator.

Mission Statement
