Thank you to everyone who made our 2017 chicken-q at the American Legion a success! We raised about $600 to use toward reward money for those who provide anonymous tips that lead to an arrest and conviction.

Members of the Winona Area Crime Stoppers Board of Directors serve patrons during the 2017 chicken-q on May 20 at the American Legion.

Darryl Smelser retired from the Crime Stoppers Board of Directors in April. Watch the video as he receives a congratulatory plaque from Crime Stoppers President Wayne Valentine.

The Winona Area Crime Stoppers tipline is staffed by trained personnel who receive, process, and pass on tip information to investigating officers. Callers can remain anonymous and receive a monetary award for providing information which leads to an arrest and conviction for a crime. Rewards may also be made for information leading to the recovery of stolen property, the seizure of illegal drugs or an arrest on an outstanding warrant. All award payouts and amounts are determined by the Winona Area Crime Stoppers Board of Directors.
