The Chapter has
been actively providing scholarships totaling over $20,000 to students in
the local community since 2001. The Chapter established a scholarship
committee to identify the process of finding candidates from the local
Colleges and Universities. Since the first scholarship of $500 was awarded,
the Chapter has continued to provide scholarship funding to criminology,
accounting and ethics students at six local Colleges and Universities.
Currently, each School is awarded $1,000, and they each establish a
scholarship selection committee to receive applications, review them, and
select the recipients. Most of the Colleges and Universities have
professors, who are CFE members of our Chapter. For further
information about our Student Scholarships please contact Laura Krueger

Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is
a community based program, which is designed to bring law enforcement, the
news media and the citizens closer together in an effort to combat crime and
make the community a safer place to live. Crime Stoppers acts as a clearing
house for information, and encourages people who know about crimes or about
people who have committed crimes to call with information. Crime Stoppers
offers rewards to people who call. People remain anonymous when they call.
Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay was established in 1988, and currently services
Hillsborough and Pasco counties. In 1998, the program was expanded to
include all public middle and senior high schools in Hillsborough County.
Campus Crime Stoppers of Hillsborough County is just as effective in the
schools as it is in the community. Through anonymous tips, over $85,000 in
drugs and stolen property has been recovered and there have been over 600
