The Nacogdoches Crime Stoppers Program began in 1982 from the efforts of our City Commission and our Police Department. Our Program now operates as an independent organization. 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 airtime, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Crime Stoppers as an effective tool to fight crime in the Nacogdoches area. To date, over 1,500 arrests and over $3.8 million in property and seized narcotics recovered.
