Genesee County Crime Stoppers Offering New Incentive to Combat Crime

Crime Stoppers of Flint and Genesee County is offering a new incentive to help reduce violent crime and get criminals off the streets.

As of Sunday, violent crime is down in Flint. With the hopes of keeping up the momentum, Crime Stopper is offering a reward of $500 for tips that help lead to the arrest of a Felon in Possession of a Firearm.

The official announcement of the incentive will be made at a news conference Thursday at the Flint Police Department at 2:00 P.M.

The enhanced reward amounts for these tips will be offered in Flint and Genesee County to start. Other Crime Stoppers programs in the Mid-Michigan coalition, including Saginaw, Bay, Midland, Gladwin and Alpena, may implement this incentive in the future.
