Durango-La Plata Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
You are urged to call CrimeStoppers 24 hours a day. You do not need to give your name, and you may be eligible for a substantial cash reward.
Established 37 years ago, in April of 1978, Durango Crime Stoppers was the first Crime Stoppers organization in Colorado. It was fashioned after a Crime Stoppers organization in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
