Welcome to VZ County Crime Stoppers
Van Zandt County Crime Stoppers is a nonprofit community partnership that works with local law enforcement agencies to solve and reduce crimes within the entire county. Crime Stoppers provides an anonymous means for citizens to report crimes or the whereabouts of fugitives.
Through the tip line (903.567.7867) or submitting a Web Tip form on this site, crimes can be reported, anonymously, resulting in a cash reward of up to $1,000 for tips that lead to arrest. Crime Stoppers is a proven crime reduction tool funded entirely through public donations and fund raising. Tax-deductible contributions can be sent directly to Van Zandt County Crime Stoppers, PO Box 961, Canton, TX 75103.
When a citizen with information about a crime calls Crime Stoppers, anonymity is assured by a special identifying system. No one ever knows the caller’s identity. If the tip leads to an arrest in the case, the caller receives a cash reward.
A volunteer Board of Directors made up of local citizens oversees Van Zandt County Crime Stoppers and approves rewards. Citizens are encouraged to attend Crime Stopper meetings, open to the public, on the third Monday each month (except holidays) at 7 p.m. at the Van Zandt County Criminal Justice Center on State Route 64 in Canton.
Tipster information leads to the idenity of the alleged shoplifter at Means Home Center. The person charged is Rachel Welch from the Canton area. If you have information about a crime, submit your tip anonymously by calling 903-567-7867, or online at www.vanzandtcrimestoppers.org. If the information leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
