In 2015, Durham CrimeStoppers, in partnership with Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), launched a GunStoppers initiative to reduce gun crimes. Traditionally, violent crimes involve the use of illegal firearms. The GunStoppers Initiative focuses on soliciting information about illegal firearms in the community such as those possessed by felons, and those used in the commission of crimes. CrimeStoppers will pay up to $500 cash for information leading to a felony arrest and recovery of an illegal gun in Durham.
Durham CrimeStoppers is an anonymous tip line that allows callers to report crime tips, and potentially collect rewards in felony cases. If you have information about someone in possession of an illegal gun(s) call Durham CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200. Callers never have to give their name, and phone lines are answered 24 hours a day in English and Spanish.
