Gun Stoppers Information

Chief Wayne Scott announced the Gun Stoppers program at the Safer City Summit on January 31, 2017 as part of a city-wide effort to reduce violence involving firearms by encouraging people to report illegal firearms.  Using resources and methods already popularized by Greensboro/Guilford Crime Stoppers, citizens can submit anonymous tips about firearms possessed by felons, stolen guns, firearms used in crimes and guns deemed illegal under NC law.   Gun Stoppers officially launched on February 28, 2017.

Gun Stoppers will pay a minimum of a $250 cash reward (maximum payout $2,000)to anyone who notifies the tip line of an illegal weapon and that tip leads to an arrest and/or the confiscation of an illegal gun by the Greensboro Police Department or Guilford County Sheriff’s Department.

Tipsters who provide information about illegal weapons are still eligible for Crime Stoppers rewards if additional illegal activity is discovered as a result of the gun tip!
