Kentuckiana Crime Stoppers began in 1982. Our Program now operates as an independant organization, affilated with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, Colonel John Aubrey, Sheriff. The concept has developed into a combination of efforts by local media, businesses, civic and social clubs, law enforcement agencies, and the public. Donations of airtime, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Crime Stoppers as an effective tool to fight crime in the area. Crime Stoppers' "Crime of the Week" can be heard on the following radio stations;WHAS-AM,WQKC-AM and WDNA-FM. Local newspapers in the metro area feature the "Crime of the Week" as well as television station WAVE-TV.
Crime Stoppers is comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for the public to report crimes while not having to give their name. In addition, if the information results in an arrest based on our caller's information, the case will be presented to the Crime Stoppers Board of Directors for reward payment. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase arrests in the area we serve, Jefferson County, Ky. and southern Indiana.
