Quick 50 ProgramThe Quick 50 program is offered to area schools in Winnebago County. The purpose of the program is to increase safety in our schools by encouraging students to report weapons, drugs, alcohol or bomb threats.
$50 CASH reward is paid to students who provide information leading to an arrest.
Students with information may talk with their school's Police Liaison Officer. The information will be kept confidential.
Students may also submit tips using the Crime Stoppers web tip line, text a Tip to "IGOTYA plus your message" to 274637 or CRIMES
or by calling 920-231-TIPS(8477), although these tips will not be part of the Quick 50 program, they are still eligible for rewards if requirements are fulfilled.

The 2012 school year, the Crime Stoppers Quick 50 program has lead to 28 drug arrests, 3 alcohol arrests and 10 weapons arrests.
