Nashville (TN) Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
Nashville (TN) Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number and Web Tips to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement.
Any person, except as restricted below, who directly contacts Nashville Crime Stoppers and gives information which leads to the arrest and prosecution of an adult, or to the equivalent in the case of a juvenile, or to the arrest of a pre-indicted fugitive felon; such information pertaining to the commission of one of the seven (7) categories of crime set forth by the board of directors is eligible for a Crime Stoppers reward.
Those persons restricted from receiving a Crime Stoppers reward are: A commissioned law enforcement officer, members of the officer's immediate family, employees of the police department or members of their immediate family, the victim of the person responsible for the felony crime (suspect) and the pre-indicted fugitive felon, or members of the victims' or suspect's immediate family, are not eligible for a Crime Stoppers reward.
If two or more persons furnish information about the same crime or felony fugitive, the reward money shall be divided as the Nashville (TN) Crime Stoppers Board of Directors may determine.
Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender.
Nashville (TN) Crime Stoppers relies on volunteer Directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
