Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay, Inc. is a community based program which is designed to bring law enforcement, the news media and citizens closer together in an effort to combat crime and make the community a safer place to live, work and raise a family. Crime Stoppers acts as a clearing house for information and encourages people who know about crimes, people who have committed crimes or wanted subjects to call and give Crime Stoppers the details. Crime Stoppers offers cash rewards to people who provide information that assist law enforcement successfully. Callers will remain anonymous and can submit a tip through the tip-line 1-800-873-TIPS, website www.crimestopperstb.com or P3 Tips mobile application. We do not know who you are and do not want to know your name, only the information that you have. Through anonymous tips, over $18,014,021 in drugs and stolen property has been recovered. There have been over 6,293 arrests and 12,796 cases cleared as of 12/31/20.
Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay was established in 1988 and currently services Hillsborough and Pasco Counties. In 1998 the program was expanded to include all public middle and senior high schools in Hillsborough County. As a result of our success in Hillsborough County schools, the Campus Crime Stoppers program was expanded to include the Pasco County School District in 2010. The Campus Crime Stoppers program is just as effective in the schools as it is in the community.
It is the vision of Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay to empower the community to have safer neighborhoods, schools and work environments by providing a voice that citizens can use to stand against criminals without fear of retaliation.
