CRIME SOLVERS

703-330-0330

CRIME DOES NOT PAY - BUT CRIME SOLVERS DOES! 

"Check out Manassas City/Manassas Park Crime Solvers on Facebook"

WHAT IS CRIME SOLVERS?

Crime Solvers is a community-oriented program involving citizens, the business community, news media, and the Manassas Park Police Department working together in the fight against crime.  Crime Solvers will pay cash rewards for information leading to the arrest and indictment of any person or persons who commit crimes in the City of Manassas Park or to the capture of a wanted person. 

Crime Solvers is not operated by the Manassas Park Police Department.  

HOW DOES CRIME SOLVERS WORK?

Anyone with knowledge of a crime can call the tip line. Callers do not give their names or phone numbers, ("NO CALLER ID") and they never have to make a court appearance.  When a call is received, a fact sheet is filled out which includes a brief summary of the information provided by the caller. The call taker then assigns a "caller number" to that person. That number is the only form of identification the caller will need for any further phone calls to Crime Solvers, and if and when a reward is paid to the caller. If the information provided results in an arrest and indictment, apprehension of a fugitive or the recovery of stolen property or illegal narcotics, a cash reward ranging between $50 to $1000 is paid to the caller.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY COME FROM?

Crime Solvers is a non-profit organization which relies solely on donations from local businesses and private citizens. No tax dollars are used for rewards. In short, Crime Solvers depends on you for the funds to pay those who provide the information that helps Crime Solvers fight crime!

DOES CRIME SOLVERS WORK?

Yes! Crime Solvers has led to the arrest of over 100 criminals and fugitives, and the closure of several crimes, which include murders, rapes, robberies and burglaries. Over $33,000 has been given out for information on credible criminal activity

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Call Crime Solvers at  703-330-0330 if you have information on:

  •   A crime that has occurred in the City of Manassas Park 

  •   The whereabouts of a wanted person

  •   Stolen property or illegal narcotics

If your information leads to an arrest and indictment or the recovery of stolen property or illegal narcotics, Crime Solvers will pay you cash for that information.   

Itís the right thing to do and it pays to do it!
