Crime Stoppers is a TV show about helping real Detectives catch bad guys! Help us fund 10 episodes with your tax deductible donation.
Description of the TV program:
Crime Stoppers is a show about catching the bad guys! Special attention is given to unsolved crime re-enactments, “Crimes of the Week”, cold cases, narcotics activity, wanted fugitives, and suspected terrorist and gang activity. Hosted by Johnny Messner (The Whole Ten Yards, Tears of the Sun, Running Scared), each program starts with a Crime of the week, re-enacted using voice over story-telling and actors. This is followed by information pertaining to other crime activities and progress on last week’s case. Crime Stoppers is publicized on a regular basis by all media outlets including print, broadcast and web-based partners. Since inception of Los Angeles Crime Stoppers, as of Nov 2013, there have been 32,144 tips received, 1,423 arrests made, 17 homicides solved, 121 weapons recovered, $584,129 in property recovered, $6,394,734 in drugs seized. Crime Stoppers works!
The Organization behind the TV Program:
Crime Stoppers, the television program, derives its respected and well-branded name from the national organization, Crime Stoppers USA, who offers cash rewards for anonymous information. Set up in 1976 to prevent and reduce crime by forming a partnership among the community, law enforcement and the media, Crime Stoppers has been responsible for more than half a million arrests. Crime Stoppers is now expanding its name brand recognition to the west coast.
The Kickstarter Project:
Crime affects us all. Don’t wait to become victimized yourself to do something about it. It takes a community of people just like you to make a difference. Help us solve crimes. Please fund this project with your tax deductible donation. We are working feverishly with all media avenues, the Sheriff Dept and the Los Angeles Police Dept. to reach out to as many funding sources as possible but we can't do this without your help. All of our other funding streams are contingent upon raising $82,000. We have been blessed with tremendous support from the Los Angeles Sheriff and Police Departments, and local media but the only way to get this project finished is by reaching out to the community. People like you can make all the difference in the world. We are a crew of talented and dedicated film makers and writers and we will work tirelessly to put your funding toward making a difference in your community. Any funds above the cost of producing 10 episodes will go toward the Crime Stopper organization that offers cash rewards for anonymous tips leading to the arrest and conviction of wanted suspects and criminals. We sincerely thank you for your support and belief in all of us and in the Crime Stoppers organization.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We have placed the reserve of funding far below what it costs to create high quality productions due to the amount of pro bono and volunteer work our crew and staff dedicate to the project. $82k is the bare minimum it will take to achieve 10 episodes working generously. We all believe in Crime Stoppers and are willing to do whatever it takes to make a difference. We are well supported by the media and they have taken a vested interest in the show to make sure it gets the attention it deserves. The sheriff and police departments are also reaching out to all of their constituents for their pledge and backing in this important show. They all know Crime Stoppers works and they have all become an important backbone of the organization for many years now. We have reached out to sponsors and advertisers who without their help the funding bar would have been raised much higher. The community is gathering around Crime Stoppers. Now we ask you to stand in among us.
