About our Program

Crime Stoppers Honolulu, Inc was formed in February 1981 and is a registered 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization typically with a 20 member, all volunteers, Board of Directors. The board is diverse and made up of retired police officials, business leaders, professional experts and community members. The board gives freely of their time because they believe that this program makes a difference in creating safer communities for all.
In addition to the corporate name, the program also operates under registered trade names of CrimeStoppers Honolulu, Student CrimeStoppers and Animal CrimeStoppers, and in accordance with a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Honolulu Police Department, striving to encourage and support a network of concerned citizens, all levels of law enforcement along with the media; all working to reduce crime and improve the quality of life in our communities.
To help coordinate activities and take the phone tips, a dedicated group of about 30 volunteers have also been recruited. Persons calling in information are issued a tip number to identify who they are when they call back. A similar automated process occurs with the Web Tips form.

CrimeStoppers Honolulu, Inc. expanded its community outreach with Student CrimeStoppers in March 1997. The program was created to aid law enforcement and school officials in reducing criminal activity and related problems in schools, on school grounds, and in the nearby communities.

For example, in 2004 the Student CrimeStoppers Ice (crystal methamphetamine) and Gun Pledge efforts resulted in 57 schools participating, statewide, and 29,422 students signing the pledge. This was the second year that our program partnered with the Department of Education and the State Student Council to encourage students statewide to talk about resolving problems without resorting to violence, especially gun violence. Also in 2004, the student council safety committee members changed the national wording to include a pledge to never use ice or bring it to school.  The National Day of Concern, started in 1996 has reached over 9 million students across the country. These programs are continuing.

CrimeStoppers Honolulu, Inc. further expanded in 2001 to establish a partnership with the Hawaiian Humane Society creating a program called Animal CrimeStoppers.  Because animals depend on humans for their well-being and there are likely correlations between violence against animals and potential violence toward people, the partnership was created. Calls regarding cruelty and mistreatment of animals are referred to the Humane Society for further review. The focus of this program is to educate the public about animal cruelty as well as to identify, investigate and arrest offenders through the use of anonymous tips.
