Welcome to the official website of the Wichita Crime Commission. Founded in 1952, this year marks the 62nd year of the Crime Commission, an organization of business leaders and private citizens whose common goal is to reduce crime in our community by working proactively to support area law enforcement officers and agencies, and criminal justice professionals.
As you will see by visiting other pages on our website, the Crime Commission believes the more effective way to fight crime proactively is by creating opportunities for young people that show them the value of making good life choices and respecting law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Those programs include LAW Camp, Youth Court, Make Good Choices and Gang Free Wichita.
In, 2012 the Wichita Crime Commission completed its merger with Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County, an organization of citizens against crime that encourages the anonymous reporting of criminals and criminal behavior. In its 32-year history, Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County has never revealed the name of a tipster, has paid out nearly $300,000 dollars in rewards, and has helped recover more than $5 million in illegal drugs and stolen property.
Support for Crime Stoppers comes from citizens and businesses in the community who donate to its rewards fund and through special projects such as the annual Guns 'n Hoses Wichita boxing tournament between firefighters and law enforcement officers. To donate to Crime Stoppers, click here and locate the secure PayPal DONATE link at the bottom of the page.
Membership in the Wichita Crime Commission is by invitation only. If you wish to request membership, please contact the Crime Commission staff at 316-267-1235, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
