Crime StoppersPolice often need the public’s help to solve crimes, so the Sterling Police Department has a Crime Stoppers program
As part of the Crime Stoppers program, witnesses and others with information can receive a monetary award, if their tips lead to an arrest and charges filed against a suspect, while remaining anonymous. Awards range from $50 - $2,000, but higher awards have been made to tipsters providing assistance in more serious crime categories.
Total awards since Sterling Police Department Crime Stoppers formed in 1985 equal approximately $7,445.00 and tips provided to Crime Stoppers have resulted in about 40 cleared cases.
