CITY OF ORLANDO ILLEGAL GUN BOUNTY PROGRAM
As part of Mayor’s Dyer’s commitment to public safety, the City of
Orlando is launching a new Illegal Gun Bounty
Program. This program will be administered through Central
Florida Crimeline in an effort to generate additional arrests and to get illegal
guns off our streets.
The Illegal Gun Bounty Program is
1. Call Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS, and anonymously provide information on a
crime or suspicious activity.
2. Information that leads to an arrest, a gun recovery and a weapons charge will
result in a cash reward. All rewards and tips will be handled within the policy
and procedures of the Central Florida Crimeline and its Board of Directors.
3. Citizens who meet those three requirements are eligible for a reward of $1000
The initial funding for the Illegal Gun Bounty Program is from the law
enforcement trust fund, which is comprised of money seized from drug dealers.
Mayor Dyer is encouraging local businesses to be a part of the solution by
financially supporting the Illegal Gun Bounty
Program. If you are interested in making a tax deductible
donation please contact Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477.
