Crime Stoppers pays a cash reward up to $1,000.00 when an arrest is made or a crime is solved as a result of the caller's information. The amount of payment to the Crime Stopper caller is determined by the program coordinator and the Crime Stoppers Board of Directors who meet twice monthly to set the rewards.
Students who have information regarding criminal activity in and around their schools can remain completely anonymous while reporting a crime. Students can contact designated in-school counselors, school police officers, or call Crime Stoppers directly. If their information leads to solving a crime, or the suspension, expulsion or arrest of an offender, they are eligible for a cash reward up to $50.00 (in some cases, the rewards may exceed $50). The rewards are paid by use of a designated contact person at the school.
