The coordinator may recommend a bonus reward on a scale from $50 - $250 based on the severity of the crime and only after an arrest has been made as a result of the tip. Bonus rewards will be approved, along with the regular Crime Stoppers tips, at the monthly Safe City Commission Crime Stoppers Standing Committee Meetings. The bonus rewards are funded through the Safe City Commission.
