Crime Gun Initiative Announced
Cuyahoga County leaders announce new efforts to remove crime guns from our communities
Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish, along with Cuyahoga County Sheriff Clifford Pinkney, Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County Coordinator Bill Jelenic and Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County Board of Directors President Dr. Rustom Khouri announced a new Crime Stoppers Crime Gun Initiative.
The goal of the Crime Gun Initiative is to remove crime guns from our communities—firearms that have been illegally possessed, used in a crime, or suspected to have been used in a crime.
Details of the Crime Gun Initiative include the following:
•Crime Stoppers has established a dedicated hotline, 241-TIPS (8477), specifically for tips related to crime guns.
•Tips can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $250, for a tip that leads to an arrest or indictment.
•This is NOT a replacement for 9-1-1. This hotline should not be used to report crimes in progress or emergency situations
