Crime Stoppers of Clark County WI program has been formed


Clark County WI is now part of the national Crimes Stoppers organization that spans the United States, creating a network of local programs, working together to prevent and solve crimes in communities across the nation.
Crime Stoppers of Clark County WI was started by concerned citizens who want to help Clark County Law Enforcement and our local communities in the fight against crime. Each Crime Stoppers program is independent and operates under its own bylaws and Board of Directors. Board members come from all areas of the County, donating their time and talents, to help local law enforcement in reducing crime.
Scott Haines, Clark County Sheriff stated “I am eager for the Clark County Crime Stoppers program to start. Clark County citizens are law enforcement’s eyes. Now, citizens have a program that offers anonymity and possible cash rewards to persons who furnish information that leads to an arrest – and by doing so – citizens can assist law enforcement and help protect themselves and others.”
Started in 1976 by a man struggling to solve a significant crime; he came up with the idea that information was available, from the public that may help solve the crime. This was the beginning of a partnership of communities, the media and local law enforcement to assist in solving and preventing crimes. Here in Clark County, anonymous tips can be provided in several ways. A toll-free number (1-877-341-2416) has been established to provide information by phone. Tips can also be provided online at or by downloading the P3 app on their mobile device.
The secure tips line and the secure web connection are manned by professional program coordinators. Each caller is assigned a code number to ensure anonymity. Local law enforcement agencies receive and process anonymous tips from Crime Stoppers and use that information to help solve crimes. If the information leads to an arrest, the caller may receive cash rewards for their information.
A special thank you to the businesses and individuals that donated funds in support of this program. For those interested in financially supporting Crime Stoppers of Clark County WI, email the organization at or follow our Facebook page at
