Crime Stoppers: Make Sure Crime Doesn’t Pay

Crime prevention is up to all of us and thanks to you, the community, we are seeing a reduction in certain crimes. Please continue to speak up. If you know something, say something and help get the rest of the criminals off our streets.

Even the smallest bit of information may be just what is needed to identify and arrest the criminals involved in the following crimes. Please note: Crime Stoppers technology makes it impossible for anyone to find out who submitted a tip. To learn how this is done, visit www.CrimeStoppersUSVI.org and click on How It Works.
