In 1991, the Titus County Crime Stoppers was formed by several business members and citizens of the community along with local law enforcement.
Several years ago we expanded our coverage area into Franklin County and changed our name to Northeast Texas Area Crime Stoppers. In April 2012, we expanded to cover the Mt. Vernon ISD, City of Winfield and Winfield ISD. In May 2012, we again expanded to cover Morris County including the Cities of Lone Star, Omaha, Naples and Paul Pewitt CISD.
The Crime Stoppers 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 area.
