Our standard reward is up to $2,500 for information which leads to an arrest (up to $5,000 for arrest and indictment in homicides). On occasion depending on case specifics, such as multiple victims or a case involving a child, a reward may be increased by the Crimestoppers Board up to $5,000. Any mention of the Crimestoppers reward must be done through Crimestoppers, unless approved in writing by the organization.
