On June 24, 1981, San Marcos Crime Stoppers was founded.  As Hays County continued to grow, it was recognized that the need to expand the program to cover the entire county was needed.  In 1991, San Marcos Crime Stoppers became Hays County Crime Stoppers to better serve the citizens and businesses of Hays County.  Since the inception of the program, Hays County Crime Stoppers has facilitated more than 700 arrests, assisted in clearing over 800 cases, paid out more than $75,000 for tips, assisted in recovering nearly $350,000 in stolen property, and assisted in seizing over $12.5 million in illegal drugs.  This was all initiated by anonymous tips.  Hays County continues to be one of the fastest growing counties in the state and nation.

Hays County Crime Stoppers, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization (Tax ID: 74-2202781), and charitable gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of federal tax laws.
