Yakima County Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
Yakima County Crime Stoppers provides the public a way to get involved and remain anonymous. We provide a phone number, Web site and Mobile Application where you can give vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies in order to help solve crimes and apprehend wanted persons, all without revealing your identity.
Reward Information and Conditions
Any person, except as restricted below, who directly contacts Yakima County Crime
Stoppers and gives information which leads to the arrest of a fugitive wanted in a
felony case, will be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.00.

The following individuals are not eligible for rewards:

enforcement agencies and members of their immediate family.

Crime Stoppers accepts tips and information about crimes in order to solve or prevent such crimes.
