Up Coming Events

Ventura County Crime Stoppers (VCCS) is holding a local fund raiser!  We invite you to join us on Tuesday July 14, 4:00pm – 9:00pm at any The Habit restaurant in Ventura County.  Simply present the attached flyer with your order and VCCS will receive 20% of the proceeds.  Please feel free to distribute the flyers generously, however, as a condition of the fundraiser,  we cannot distribute flyers at the restaurant locations so please be mindful.

Ventura County Crime Stoppers, founded in 1991, has been partnering with Ventura County law enforcement for 24 years.  By offering a means for people to provide information anonymously to law enforcement and receive a cash reward when that tip leads to an arrest, we actively assist our area officers in reducing crime and removing dangerous individuals from our neighborhoods.   Local anonymous tips have led to arrests for murder, bank robbery, rape, child abuse, elder abuse, vandalism and other felonies.  Because of these tips, millions of dollars of illegal drugs have been seized, stolen property has been recovered, and numerous guns have been taken out of the hands of criminals.  Operated by volunteers, Ventura County Crime Stoppers is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation funded by private donations and fund raising. NO TAX DOLLARS are involved.   

We appreicate your support in helping make our community safer!
