About our Program

This Crime Stoppers Program began in 1982 from the efforts of the City of Bartow and the Bartow Police Department.  The program grew to cover all of Polk County and in 1994, the program was incorporated as Polk County Crime Stoppers, Inc. , a recognized 501C(3) organization.

The program continued to grow to include all of Hardee and Highlands Counties. With that growth, we are now known as Heartland Crime Stoppers to reflect the three (3) counties in the heartland of Florida.

Heartland Crime Stoppers is an independant organization which is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors oversees all financial and business matters relating to the organization. The Board of Directors also approves and determines monetary rewards for tips which resulted an arrest, the recovery of stolen property, or the recovery of illegal drugs/narcotics.

Through a combination of efforts by local media, businesses, civic and social clubs, law enforcement agencies, and the public, The Crime Stopper Program has proved to be an effective tool in fighting crime and identifying criminals in Polk, Hardee, and Highlands Counties.

Mission Statement

Crime Stoppers is comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement to receive information on crimes. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase arrests in our community.
