Hernando County Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
Anonymous tipsters who contact Crime Stoppers and give information, which law enforcement confirms led directly to the arrest of an adult or juvenile in an unsolved crime or the arrest of a wanted fugitive will be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
Hernando County Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number and an online Web Tips feature to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime. You MUST provide the information directly to Crime Stoppers to be eligible for a reward. Contacting law enforcement first, will disqualify you.
