Our Mission is the ongoing development and implementation of an effective crime solving organization which serves the entire Miami-Dade County area. The primary objective of the dynamic relationship between the COMMUNITY, MEDIA AND LAW ENFORCEMENT is: "Working together for a safer, more secure living and working environment for all Miami-Dade County residents."
Crime Stoppers of Miami-Dade County was created in September 1981. The Greater Miami Crime Commission received seed money from the Southland Corporation. Law enforcement agencies from Miami-Dade, City of Miami, Miami Beach, Coral Gables and Hialeah each detached one officer to man the phone lines. A Board of Directors was created to administer the program, Channel 4-WTVJ became the Crime Stoppers television station and the program was born.
Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers is a program which involves the public, the media and law enforcement in the fight against crime. It offers anonymity and cash rewards to people who provide information leading to the arrest of criminal offenders. If you recognize the person or know about the crime, you should call Crime Stoppers.
