Miami-Dade Police Gun Bounty Program to tackle illegal firearms

Miami-Dade Police's Gun Bounty Program offers $1,000 rewards for crucial tips

Despite having permitless carry laws in place, no state is safe from people owning illegal firearms. As concerns about gun violence escalate, the Miami-Dade Police Department is taking proactive measures to address the issue of illegal firearms circulating on the streets.

Introducing the Gun Bounty Program, the police seek to incentivize community involvement by offering a substantial $1,000 reward for those who provide valuable tips leading to the arrest of individuals in illegal possession of guns and the successful recovery of these weapons.

Empowering the community with the Gun Bounty Program

With mass shootings on the rise and illegal gun ownership posing a significant threat, the Miami-Dade Police Department's Gun Bounty Program aims to empower community members to play an active role in creating a safer environment.

By providing anonymous tips through Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477, individuals can help law enforcement take illegal firearms off the streets and prevent potential tragedies.

The Gun Bounty Program promises confidentiality, ensuring that tipsters' identities remain protected throughout the process. The focus is solely on safeguarding the community and eliminating illegal guns, as the police emphasize that no one will ever ask for the tipster's name or phone number. Every piece of information counts, and each valuable tip contributes to making Miami a safer place for everyone.

Call 305-471-8477 to report information about an unlawful gun owner in Miami-Dade County. Your identity and phone number will always be concealed and protected throughout all calls.
