About Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys
Crime Stoppers of the
Florida Keys is a communitybased program designed to
help law enforcement solve
crimes by rewarding anonymous tipster who supply criminal information that lead to
arrests. The program can only
work through the combined
efforts of the community, the
media and law enforcement. Crime Stoppers is actually a
non-profit corporation run by
a civilian board of directors.
The rewards are paid from
donations raised by the board. Tax money is not used. Crime
Stoppers is a successful local,
state, national and international program.
How it works
Crime Stoppers operates a toll free number that
is answered by trained staff
members. Anyone who has
information about a crime or
a criminal can pass it on by
using the 24-hour hot line or
by using the internet at www. Tipsters may
choose to remain anonymous.
A code number is given to the
Any tips received on the
hot line are passed on to the
appropriate law enforcement
agency for investigation. If
the tip results in an arrest,
the independent civilian board
of Crime Stoppers can give a
reward of up to one thousand
dollars. The tipster picks up
the reward at a local financial
institution by using the code
number. The code number
protests the anonymity of the
tipster, which is essential to
success of the program. The
tip line is 1-800-346-TIPS
Crime Stoppers works! There are hundreds of Crime
Stopper programs in operation
around the world. In Florida

How can you help?
Since Crime Stoppers does
not use tax money, donations
are needed to help fund the
reward program. A donation to Crime Stoppers is an
investment in a safer com-
munity. Crime Stoppers gets
criminals off the streets. If you want to actively
participate, Crime Stoppers
always needs volunteers to
serve as board members.

board, or if you have any
