Miami-Dade & The Florida Keys
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 outside individual may face criminal charges by even asking Crime Stoppers or law enforcement for Tipster 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
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.
