About our Program

This Crime Stoppers program began in 1994 through the efforts of Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre who recognized a need for community help in solving crimes. Originally, the program was called "Lafourche Crime Stoppers" and served only Lafourche parish. In 2011, the program expanded to include Terrebonne Parish and now operates as an independent organization: Crime Stoppers Bayou Region. The concept has developed into a combination of efforts by local media, businesses, civic and social clubs, law enforcement agencies, and the public. Donations of airtime, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Crime Stoppers as an effective tool to fight crime in the area.

Mission Statement

Crime Stoppers is comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement to receive information on crimes. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase the crimes solved and arrests in our community.
