Mission Statement
To engage members of faith based congregations and their leaders, working in partnership with Crimestoppers and law enforcement, to become the “eyes and ears” and “Speak Up” in their communities against violence. Project Good Samaritan clergy and member organizations, will also work to educate victims of crime with the knowledge of available resources to assist along their journey and to foster partnership between citizens and law enforcement.

Crimestoppers hopes to engage members of the faith-based congregations to become the "eyes and ears" and "Speak Up" in their communities against violence. It is only through working together that we witness against evil and destruction caused by violence. We also hope to be a nonpolitical resource to share the great work already being done by the churches through a resource directory, providing victims with the knowledge of available resources to assist along their journey.
