The Taylorville Police Department uses their Crime Stoppers Program all across the county to make sure the community stays safe. Since its inception in Christian County Crime Stoppers has solved more than 500 crimes and recovered more than half a million dollars in property and drugs. Sargent Alan Mills of the Taylorville Police Department said he's proud the Taylorville PD is able to provide this service locally, and always happy to see how much the community tries to help.
Mills said the Crime Stoppers program prides itself on its anonymity to make sure people can be sure they're in good hands and they'll be safe at all costs if they give information.
Mills said those code numbers work through an organization in Canada, which have no possible way of being uncovered, unlike in the United States. Citizens who give the tip to help solve the Crime Stoppers crime of the week will be given double the reward amount.
