About Us

About our Program

Wichita, Kansas was the setting of the organizational meeting of the Kansas Crime Stoppers Association on March 25, 1987.  Six people from various Crime Stoppers programs across Kansas were instrumental in spearheading the idea of the Kansas Crime Stoppers Association: Don Weide, Topeka; Rick Frevert, Emporia; Margaret Jones, Kansas City, Missouri; Mike McNown, Wichita; Stan Conkwright, Manhattan; and Tim Herrera, Fort Dodge.  In 1987 there were nineteen Crime Stoppers programs.  

Kansas Crime Stoppers Association is a nonprofit organization which consists of a volunteer board of directors and individual and program members. The purpose of KCSA is to promote and encourage Crime Stopper programs in Kansas by providing development and training to reduce criminal activity.

The state association does not issue reward monies. KCSA hosts an annual conference where training is provided for existing or new programs across the state. Training is also provided for Scholastic Crime Stoppers programs, which are programs operated within the middle and high schools.
