Taos County Crime Stoppers board of directors is comprised of dedicated community representatives. Our program offers anonymous methods for the public to report information regarding unsolved crimes and fugitives. It is the public, police and private sector working together for a safer Taos County.
Structure and Funding of Crime Stoppers
Taos County Crime Stoppers (TCCS) is organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (charity). A community board of directors provides oversight as to the financial and promotional activities of the program. TCCS is funded by private donations. NO TAX DOLLARS are involved. Any reward money paid out by the program comes from tax deductible donations by concerned citizens and businesses.
TCCS board of directors meets on a monthly basis to administer the program, evaluate arrests and to decide on the size of rewards to be paid, up to $1,000. Rewards are then distributed in a private manner to anonymous tipsters. Many callers choose not to collect their reward.

Volunteer to help TCCS
If you are interested in volunteering to assist Taos County Crime Stoppers, we sometimes require help with special projects and events. You may have a special skill or background in criminal justice that TCCS can use. Let us know by emailing the board at TCCS.firstname.lastname@example.org with volunteer in the subject line.
TCCS is currently in need of a Facebook page manager who has experience with administering the platform on behalf of a nonprofit organization. This volunteer would work with the TCCS web editor.
