Santa Fe seeks help rebooting Crime Stoppers program

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – The City of Santa Fe is trying to resurrect its Crime Stoppers program but it needs help.

The Santa Fe Crime Stoppers program slowly faded away in 2013. Now the Santa Fe Police Department has a plea for community members to help bring it back, with the first step creating a board of directors.

“We’re looking for persons who can make sound decisions within the controlled environment, just to help us combat the issues we have within community crime, crime prevention. It’s a good awareness program,” said Ofc. William Cordova, Santa Fe Police Department.

Just like the Albuquerque program, people are paid cash rewards if they help solve profiled crimes. The program has been very successful in locking up criminals but keeping the money rolling in and the resources to keep it going is sometimes challenging.

The important thing about Crime Stoppers is that tipsters can remain anonymous while still collecting the reward.

Anyone interested in helping can call Santa Fe Police.
