Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers
816-474-TIPS (8477)

Crime Stoppers is a non-profit community organization—not a police agency—that encourages members of the community to assist law enforcement in solving crime. Crime Stoppers serves the entire metropolitan area, not just Kansas City.

As noted on the Crime Stoppers website,, "fear and apathy" are two factors that inhibit communities and the police as they seek to reduce crime.

AdHoc Group Against Crime

The "community hotline" number listed above is available 24/7.

The AdHoc Group Against Crime was formed in 1977 as concerned citizens came together to address the unsolved murders of nine African American women. According to the Group's website,, the organization "serves as a trusted bridge between the community and law enforcement to reduce violence and solve crimes in order to make our neighborhoods safe and secure."
