The Morris County Sheriff’s CrimeStoppers Program will conduct its 23rd Annual Fundraiser on Monday, Dec. 22, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Birchwood Manor on Jefferson Road in Whippany.

Tickets are $65 per person, with proceeds benefitting the CrimeStoppers Program.

CrimeStoppers allows citizens who have information relating to crimes, criminal activity or fugitives to call 973-COP-CALL or 1-800 SHERIFF. Their information is taken by a CrimeStoppers operator and forwarded to the proper law enforcement agency. The information is kept confidential, and the name of the individual is never asked.

If that information leads to an arrest and an indictment, the individual is eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.

Morris County Sheriff’s CrimeStoppers is a non-profit corporation funded by contributions from the business and private sector. It is administered by a volunteer civilian Board of Commissioners who oversees the routine business affairs, control the finances and determine reward amounts and the methods of payment.

Additional information about the Dec. 22 fundraiser may be obtained by calling Sgt. Moire Reilly of the Morris County Sheriff’s CrimeStoppers Program at 973-285-6675.

Tickets are tax deductable.
