In conjunction with the Stephens County TX Crime Stoppers "See Something/Say Something" campaign, Stephens County TX Crime Stoppers is sponsoring a program through the Breckenridge Police Department to provide the opportunity for anyone interested, the chance to call the Breckenridge Police Department (254-559-2211) and request the FREE installation of a security camera on their property to record possible illegal activity which could lead to the arrest and conviction of the criminals involved. Only property owners may request this service and property ownership will be confirmed prior to installation of the camera.
The Police Department will install and monitor the cameras at no cost. Take advantage of this opportunity if you feel criminal activity is present in your area. Crime Stoppers is using the Police Department for this service to protect the anonymous call-in feature used by the crime stopper tip line.
Please call the Breckenridge Police Department ((254) 559-2211) if you would like further information.

CRIME STOPPERS DOESN'T WANT YOUR NAME — JUST YOUR INFORMATION
There is always someone who has information that can help solve crime. Those are the people who can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously and provide a tip that will help investigators identify those responsible. In any investigation police and other law enforcement agencies encounter individuals who will not directly provide information.
The three key reasons are:
Crime Stoppers breaks through these barriers by giving people the opportunity to provide information without directly speaking to police or having to testify in court. And they can receive cash rewards for their efforts.
Obviously investigators need witnesses to help prove their case in court, but most importantly, they need information that allows them to zero in on a suspect or a criminal operation such as a drug trafficking network. Your anonymous tip may just be the vital information needed to solve a crime or catch a criminal.
Tips to Crime Stoppers do not necessarily give police evidence they require to arrest an individual, but puts them on the right track to solve crime.
WHAT WE MEAN BY ANONYMOUS...
Anonymous means that your name is not known nor made public. It is vital to us that our program guarantees anonymity. If the identity of one of our tipsters was made known against his or her will, it would destroy the trust Crime Stoppers will be building in Stephens County.
Crime Stoppers is largely dependent on financial support from individuals and businesses within our community. All funds donated are used for LOCAL rewards, promotions, and operating expenses.
