Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization. The first Crime Stoppers program began in September 1976 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and has since spread to include over 1,000 cities and 13 countries worldwide. The mission of Crime Stoppers is to work with law enforcement and the media to help make our communities a safer place in which to live. Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers (originally named San Jose Crime Stoppers) was formed in September 1982 and is made up of a board of volunteers.

On August 17, 2000, San Jose Crime Stoppers changed their name to Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers (SVCS) to better reflect the newly expanded program and partnership with all of the law enforcement agencies in Santa Clara County, as well as the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office, California Highway Patrol and the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department.
