Riders on Sportran buses will now get a constant reminder that if they see, hear, or know anything about a crime, all they have to do is “Grab a Cell and Tell.”  

Banner ads bearing that slogan and contact information for the Caddo and Bossier Crime Stoppers programs have now been posted inside every Sportran bus.

Sportran Safety Director Colin Mulloy says the area’s mass transit system makes over 3-million fixed-route and Liftline trips every year in Shreveport and Bossier City and its passengers are in a unique position to witness illegal activities.  Said Mulloy, “It is impossible to understate the power of 400,000 sets of eyes and ears utilizing the Caddo and Bossier Crime Stoppers programs to help keep our community safe.”

Crime Stoppers began in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the 1970s. It came to Shreveport in 1981 and then expanded to Bossier City and all of Caddo Parish. The program relies on a triad consisting of the community, the media, and law enforcement to take criminals off the streets.  It gets its funding from public donations, fund-raising events, and a small percentage of court costs.  All callers to Crime Stoppers remain completely anonymous. As all Crime Stoppers programs have said since the inception of the program, “We don’t want your name — just your information.”  Each caller is assigned a code number and if his or her call results in an arrest, he or she is eligible for a cash reward of up to $1000.
