Williamson County Crime Stoppers is made up of a board of civilian volunteers co-ordinated through the Williamson County Sheriff's Office Crime Prevention Division. It serves all the communities in Williamson County including. Franklin, Fairview, Nolensville, College Grove, Triune, Arlington, Thompson Station and Spring Hill.

Crime Stoppers can be extremely beneficial in combating the crime problem. It is an effective resource in which private citizens join together with law enforcement to solve difficult crimes.

Often citizens do not contact the police with information that could help solve a crime out of fear that if they reveal their own identity they would expose themselves or their family to acts of retaliation by the criminal.

Through Crime Stoppers citizens who have knowledge of a specific crime are encouraged to contact the police with this information. Crime Stoppers allows any citizen to come forward with information and remain anonymous. The citizen is assured that their identity is protected and that any information reported will be utilized. Citizens are issued a code number that will be used to identify them. This code number is used to inquire on the status of the reported crime and collect reward money.

Crimes Stoppers objectives are to furnish law enforcement agencies with information about criminal activity that would otherwise be unobtainable and to motivate public involvement with law enforcement efforts.

Williamson County Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1000 for information called into 794-4000 that leads to an arrest and indictment. Callers will remain anonymous, they will only be known by the code number they are issued.
