In order to claim a reward, you must (1) provide information to the law enforcement agency which leads to the apprehension and conviction of the party responsible for the crime and (2) submit a claim for a reward to the Executive Office of the Board of Supervisors.

In order to receive payment for a reward, the person or persons responsible for the crime must be convicted of the crime, unless the Board of Supervisors makes a finding of impossibility of conviction due to the death or incapacity of such person or persons.

How to Provide Information

Claims for rewards must be in writing and should provide sufficient information on how to contact the claimant.

A claim for a reward must state the information which led or will lead to the apprehension and conviction of the criminal.

Informants may remain anonymous and such claims may be submitted through a third party such as a police agency, and such information will be kept confidential. Anonymous claims must provide a method of contact.
