Crime Stoppers serves as a clearinghouse for tips, and acts as a liaison between anonymous citizens and law enforcement agencies. When a Citizen (or Tipster) calls in with a tip or information about a crime, Crime Stoppers disseminates that information to the appropriate law enforcement agency for immediate action.
Crime Stoppers does not collect any personal information from our Citizens, so you can rest assured your identity is fully protected. When you call, you will be assigned a random Case Number. You can use this number to follow up on the status of the case. If your tip leads to an arrest, you are eligible for a cash reward. Reward monies are collected anonymously at a local bank, so your identity is never compromised.
Crime Stoppers began in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1976 for the purpose of providing the community with a safe and anonymous method to report criminal activity. Today, the non-profit organization has grown worldwide with representation in more than 20 countries.
Broward County Crime Stoppers, often recognized as one of the most successful programs in the world, was established in 1981 at the direction of Sheriff Robert Butterworth and Mr. David Rush. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office (BSO) supports the organization by providing a program coordinator and trained staff to answer calls.
