What Is Crime Stoppers?

Hernando County Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization with general funding achieved through donations and fund-raising events; the reward program is supported by the Office of the Florida Attorney General. Our purpose is to encourage citizens to assist law enforcement officials in apprehending criminals and making Hernando County a safer place to live. We offer motivation by providing cash rewards up to $1000 for any tips leading to a felony or fugitive arrest. All of the tips we receive are 100% anonymous for your protection. By working together, common citizens and law enforcement officers can make Hernando County a safer place for all.
