GUN CRIMES ARE ON THE RISE --
AND SO ARE OUR REWARDS!
Crime Stoppers is now paying $2,500 cash for tips leading to an arrest where a gun was used in a felony crime, and $5,000 cash for a tip leading to an arrest in a homicide case.
Illegal Gun Bounty Reward Program
To help combat the marked increase in gun-related crime in our community, Champaign County Crime Stoppers launched the Illegal Gun Bounty Reward Program in 2019.
Effective March 2, 2022, anyone who contacts Crime Stoppers with a tip that leads to the arrest of a person who used a gun during the commission of a felony crime in Champaign County will receive a $2,500 cash reward ($5,000 cash reward for a homicide).
As always, to be award-eligible tips MUST be submitted directly to Crime Stoppers via our phone line, this website, or our free P3 Tips mobile app.
The Illegal Gun Bounty Reward Program will continue to be offered so long as public donations and grant funds are available to support the expanded rewards.

REMAIN ANONYMOUS. RECEIVE CA$H REWARDS.
Champaign County Crime Stoppers encourages the public to assist local law enforcement in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
Champaign County Crime Stoppers provides three main ways for tipsters to anonymously give helpful information to local law enforcement. If your tip leads to an arrest, you could receive up to a $5,000 cash reward:
To be eligible, and to protect the tipster's anonymity, tips MUST be submitted via one of the following ways:
When you contact Crime Stoppers, you are not contacting law enforcement. We do not record phone calls or using any tracking schemes. Sophisticated and expensive technology is employed to ensure your identity will never be known to anyone.
You will remain completely ANONYMOUS and neither Crime Stoppers nor the police will ever know your identity. We don't want your name, just any information to help solve local crimes and put criminals behind bars.
Champaign County Crime Stoppers relies on a community volunteer board of directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the program.
