Texas Crime Stoppers, funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to individuals who provide information leading to the apprehension of Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Fugitives or Sex Offenders. In 2023, the Department of Public Safety (DPS) and other law enforcement agencies have successfully arrested 37 individuals listed among Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders. In total, $88,000 in rewards has been paid for tips that contributed to these arrests.

To be eligible for cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities using one of the following three methods:

  • Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about then clicking on the link under their picture.
  • Submit a Facebook tip by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).

All tips are anonymous — regardless of how they are submitted — and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders Lists. You can find the current lists — with photos — on the DPS website.
