About our Program

The Manatee County Crime Stoppers was first organized as a non-profit corporation in the state of Florida on November 21, 1989.  Since then the group has expanded and resulted in solving many high profile crimes and paying out thousands of dollars in rewards.

Mission Statement

The mission of CrimeStoppers of Manatee County is to make Manatee County a safer place by assisting Law Enforcement with the collection of critical information and intelligence (tips) with regard to criminal activity, unsolved crimes, and the whereabouts of fugitives. Crimestoppers will provide a system for soliciting and receiving anonymous tips as well as offer monetary rewards to residents (tipsters) in exchange for information that leads to an arrest.
