Bullock County Crime Stoppers was established in 2006 by a group of citizens concerned about many problems with law enforcement in the Union Springs, Midway and the County. Citizens felt their voices were not being heard.
Through many trials and tribulations, the organization was able to offer many rewards for tips that lead to arrests. Funds and equipment were provided to the Union Springs Police Department, the Sheriff's Department, and the Alabama State Troopers. The Citizens of Bullock County pulled together to raise money for a K-9 Unit. With the death of two dogs the program was discontinued.
In 2019 the Executive Board of Directors voted to merge with the Central Alabama Crime Stoppers to give the citizens of Bullock County a more secure way to report crimes without fear of anyone knowing the identity of the tipster. Central Alabama Crime Stoppers have more staff and offer more programs to help local Jaw enforcement agencies.
Tony Garrett is the Director of Central Alabama Crime Stoppers. The number to call is (334) 215-STOP. The website is 215stop.com.
Courtney Woodfaulk and Barbara McLaurine serve as Directors on the Board for Central Alabama Crime Stoppers.
Crime Stoppers is a nonprofit organization that brings together law enforcement, media, and the community to stop, solve, and prevent crime.
Central Alabama 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.
