We Don't Gossip... It's The Law.
Tipster anonymity is not just a Crime Stoppers' pledge -- it is in our state laws.
In Florida, a person, including Crime Stoppers staff or law enforcement officers, may commit a crime if that person intentionally or knowingly shares the identity of a Crime Stoppers Tipster. Any unauthorized individual may face criminal charges by asking Crime Stoppers staff or law enforcement for tip information. This law was created to show our commitment to the need for privacy. We are serious about the Tipster's anonymity.
Crime Stoppers only pays out rewards to anonymous tipsters to ensure a tipster's identity is never known. Tipsters who identify themselves to Crime Stoppers' staff or law enforcement are not eligible for payment by state rules and our operating procedures.
Our Guidelines for Reward Payouts
Tipster must not be a victim. Victims need to file police reports with the local law enforcement agency.
The tipster’s identity must remain anonymous and unknown to the organization and law enforcement.
The tip must come through the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip lines, 305 471-8477, online at CrimeStoppers305.com or via the mobile website.
The tip must lead to an arrest of the individual(s) involved.
Reward value may vary due to the degree of assistance tip gives in resolving a case. A case may require multiple tips to make an arrest.
The tipster MUST have the tip number and code given by the operator or web form to be eligible for the reward.
Start the good.
It isn't enough to wish away the bad,
You have to speak the good into existence.
Because if no one starts, nothing will change.
