About our Program

This Ruston / Lincoln Parish Crime Stoppers Program began in 1977 from the efforts of community business leaders, citizens, the Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Office and the Ruston Police Department. Our Program operates as an independent organization and is governed by the Ruston/Lincoln Crime Stoppers Board of Directors. 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 air time, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Crime Stoppers as an effective tool to fight crime in the area. |||

Mission Statement

Crime Stoppers is comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement to receive anonymous information on crimes. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase arrests in our community. |
