they can receive a reward if their tip leads to an arrest or disciplinary action. Every week, we compile and distribute our Most Wanted fugitive list at the request of our law enforcement partners. In 2021, we featured 346 wanted fugitives. Through tips, police fieldwork, and self-surrenders, 174 wanted suspects were arrested. The Crime of the Week spotlights an unsolved case from one of our law enforcement partners that is distributed and publicized through local news media and our social media profiles. Our Crime of the Week has helped solve homicides, aggravated robberies, identity thefts, and much more with the help of tips submitted by the public. With the support of our local and business communities, Crime Stoppers aims to enhance and increase safety in El Paso as it continues to grow.

Crime Stoppers of El Paso, Inc. has given El Pasoans an anonymous voice in fighting crime since 1978. The mission of the non-profit organization is to carry out a community offensive against crime by working with the community, law enforcement, and the media to solve crimes. Through our program, criminal information is received anonymously, sent to our law enforcement partners, and cases are published through the media. Additionally, tipsters are rewarded monetarily if their tip results in an arrest. Our ongoing efforts resulted in a 59% increase in cases cleared and a 46% increase in arrests for 2021. The program also gained 4,000 new followers on social media, and our website traffic increased by 13%, about half the population of the city. In addition, we were recognized by the Governor’s Office as having cleared the most cases for a population of our size in 2020. This shows the effectiveness of Crime Stoppers of El Paso and how we engage with the community and foster trust. Since inception, Crime Stoppers of El Paso has helped arrest 4,625 subjects, cleared 6,150 cases, recovered $48,852,360 in narcotics, $44,484,474 in recovered property, and have issued $1,183,050 in rewards. The program also supports the initiatives of local law enforcement agencies. We regularly work with the El Paso Police Department, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, Texas DPS, campus police, and many other local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. The program also takes tips related to criminal activity occurring on school grounds. Students are able to call our tipline to anonymously report information. In turn,
