The Texas Stash House Rewards Program is designed to encourage Texans to anonymously report information on stash houses used to facilitate smuggling of illegal aliens, trafficking of victims, and smuggling of drugs in an effort to combat transnational crime. For more information, click here.
Through the work of hundreds of crime stoppers programs, law enforcement agencies, and volunteers, more than 1.3 million tips from anonymous tipsters have resulted in nearly 200,000 suspects arrested and more than $1.4 billion recovered in property and narcotics since 1981.
The Texas 10 Most Wanted program is a joint program between the Texas Crime Stoppers and the Texas Department of Public Safety that identifies select fugitives and wanted sex offenders who pose the most significant threat to public safety in the state. For more information, click here.
