Frankfort Crime Stoppers is a three entity approach to solving the crime problem. It relies on the partnership and cooperation between police, media, and the community to provide information about crimes and the criminals involved.
Frankfort Crime Stoppers receives its tips through phone calls at 502-875-8648 or entries through this website. The phone and website are stand-alone instruments which do not ID the tipster, and conversations are not recorded. Frankfort Crime Stoppers receives the tips, makes initial inquiries and then passes the information to the appropriate officer or detective for investigation. All tips are accepted regardless of being a publicized request for information, such as "Crime of the Week," or other crime(s) the caller has knowledge of.
By guaranteeing a caller's anonymity, Crime Stoppers allows the caller to give information in a positive atmosphere without the prospect of retribution. By offering cash rewards for information leading to indictment or arrests, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information.
