Crime Stoppers has been in existence nationally since September 7, 1976.

It originated in Albuquerque, New Mexico after a young detective working a homicide became frustrated at the lack of leads on the case. After reenacting the crime and broadcasting it with local media, a tip was received that helped to identify the suspects. The suspects were tried and convicted of the murder.

The programs receive tips that assist investigators in solving crimes including homicides, sexual assaults, drug trafficking operations and robberies, just to name a few.  Its first student Crime Stoppers program began in a Boulder, Colorado high school in 1983.
