In 1991, a group of local citizens and law enforcement decided to form an area crime stoppers program. The only other crime stopper program in Brazoria County at the time was the "Stop Crime of Alvin Crime Stoppers" program.
About our Program
In November of 1992, Angleton Area Crime Stoppers was formed and had applied for a grant to purchase a computer, telephone, fax machine, and other office equipment. However, the Texas Crime Stoppers Council was only allowed to grant funding to one crime stoppers program in each county. Since Alvin had already established a crime stoppers program in the county, the Department of Criminal Justice awarded them a 50/50 grant that was to be split between the two certified programs.
At that time, the Angleton Area Crime Stoppers program was located inside the Angleton Police Department and the phone line was answered by a police officer. Angleton Area Crime Stoppers was also an umbrella program for some of the area schools.
The Brazoria County Crime Stoppers program is made up of county volunteers who are willing to devote their time and resource to ensure that the program is a success and is open to all citizens. The program continues to exceed our expectations and has proven to be a valuable resource for local and county law enforcement.
