Crime Stoppers is organized as a non-profit corporation. The Board of Directors is recognized by the courts as the legal entity representing Crime Stoppers. The Board of Directors represents the community in the partnership between law enforcement, the community and the media that is known as Crime Stoppers.
The most important responsibility of the Board is trusteeship. The Directors are responsible for the organization’s programs, image and assets. They have a duty to manage the organization honestly, in good faith and in the best interest of the organization using the care and diligence of a reasonably prudent person.
The Board's composition should represent a cross-section of the community. The Board does NOT contain law enforcement officers, criminal justice officials, government officials or elected officials since this could create a conflict of interest. It is a community based organization consisting of civilian leaders within the community (except for the program coordinators who do not have a vote on the Board).
The Board of Directors serves a variety of purposes, including creating the policies for the Crime Stoppers Program, raising funds for the rewards, determining rewards, ensuring that these rewards are paid and promoting the program.
Board Members are expected to attend monthly meetings with additional committee meetings throughout the month as well as participate in public awareness and fundraising throughout the year.
