February 02, 2017

Announced today, Peoria Crimestoppers will pay a cash award of $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and charging of a suspect in homicides by gunfire.

The previous award was $1,000. Law enforcement sees this is a big boost.

"This is just a huge opportunity by raising this amount of money to allow us to do our job. And i think this is just going to be a tremendous asset," said Peoria County Sheriff Mike McCoy.

"We do need that help in getting some of these cases solved. We have a large number of cases that, violent cases, that need some assistance. And we're hopeful that these new measures will increase that participation," said Peoria Police Chief Jerry Mitchell.

Crimestoppers scrubs and deletes all emails, phone calls and texts once a tip proves successful.

All awards are paid in cash, including this new $5,000. The number to call if you have a tip is 309-673-9000
