Did you know that Collierville has its own Crimestoppers organization? Completely separate from nearby municipalities, Collierville Crimestoppers works with the Collierville Police Department to help capture criminals in our community by offering cash rewards and anonymity to citizens who provide information about crimes.
The 24-hour hotline 457-CASH (2274) is not recorded or monitored like other lines to the Police Department. In addition, anonymous text messages may be sent by texting the keyword CPDTIP along with the message to Tip411 (847411).
The Collierville Crimestoppers Board of Directors are comprised of unpaid citizen volunteers. They set policy, develop ideas for increasing public awareness, raise funds, plan special events, screen each individual case, set reward amounts for tipsters and make payoffs with the Police Liaison Officer, Lieutenant David Townsend. They also work closely with several organizations under the Collierville Police Department, such as Neighborhood Watch, National Night, the Special Citizen's Volunteer Patrol, and Explorer Scouts.
In addition to providing tips, Collierville residents can support Crimestoppers through tax-deductible donations sent here: Collierville Crime Stoppers, P.O. Box 592, Collierville, TN 38027.
