Solving crimes through community.
The purpose for which Manchester CrimeLine, Inc. was founded is the promotion of law and order and the better enforcement of existing laws by assisting the City of Manchester, New Hampshire Police Department in the apprehension and conviction of criminals through making funds available for use in offering rewards; by help develop a community offensive against crime; by motivating members of the public to cooperate with the Manchester Police Department and other Law Enforcement agencies and by providing rewards and awards for such cooperation.
The affairs of Manchester CrimeLine, Inc. are managed by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of 17 civilian members. Manchester CrimeLine, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization that raises funds through various events and other funding opportunities.

How it all began.
Manchester CrimeLine, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that works alongside the Manchester Police Department, offering rewards to citizens who provide information that leads to the arrest and indictment of criminals. Formed in 1981, CrimeLine has assisted the MPD in solving thousands of cases, making Manchester a safer place to live, work, and raise families.
The CrimeLine Board of Directors are all volunteers who are dedicated to making a difference in our city by giving their time throughout the year in raising money and participating in other crime prevention activities. The Board meets once a month to review cases solved from tips and determine the rewards to be paid to informants (based on Manchester CrimeLine guidelines & bylaws). All informants remain anonymous. When information leads to the arrest and indictment of criminals, callers are eligible for cash rewards.
