About Us


Crime Stoppers of Somerset County was organized in 2003 to promote safer communities through a partnership with law enforcement, the media and residents of the community.

Who are these partners?

  • Law Enforcement - The primary law enforcement agency is the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office. Calls anonymously placed to 1-888-577-TIPS (8477) or submitted online at www.888577tips.org or www.scpo.net are answered by the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office and Somerset County’s 911 Communication Center operators.
  • Media - Each week the Courier- News and the Somerset Reporter newspapers feature “Fugitives of the Week”, alerting the public of individuals that are wanted by law enforcement agencies in Somerset County for crimes that they have committed. Other media outlets such as wire services, radio, cable and television stations are also utilized.
  • Community - Members of a Board of Directors represent Somerset County residents and other volunteers who have pledged their time and support to make our streets and neighborhoods safer places to live and work.
