How It Works - Cash Rewards - Anonymity
Miami-Dade & The Florida Keys Crime Stoppers is a program which involves the public, the media and law enforcement in the fight against crime. It offers anonymity and cash rewards to people who provide information leading to the arrest of criminal offenders. If you recognize the person or know about the crime, you should call Crime Stoppers.
You can call (305) 471-8477 to give a tip. Our lines are not configured for caller ID. Phone calls are not traced. Phone calls are not recorded. You can give a tip online or through our phone app. Computer IPs are not saved. Locations are not tracked.
The “tipster” does not give her/his name. All tips are anonymous. Computers assign a tip number to the “tipster”. Law enforcement agencies receive the information and investigate the information submitted by the callers; callers should check back often to see if their information qualifies for a reward.
As a “tipster”, you are given a confidential tip number. Use this number to check on the status of your information. If your information results in an arrest or filing of criminal charges, arrangements are made for you to receive your reward in CASH and preserve your anonymity.
Once you have a tip number, you should check back to see if their information qualifies for a reward. You MUST have the tip number to receive information or to be paid. Save your tip number! We don't have a way of giving it to you again!
The Board of Directors, depending on the circumstance of each case, with the help of a computerized formula determines the reward amount, ranging from $50 to $3,000. The rewards can be significantly higher in some high-profile cases when sponsored by donations from a concerned entity.
