Crime Stoppers Fees

Channel 5 just told me that Wise County Crime Stoppers would pay up to $1,000 for tips leading to the arrest (and conviction?) of anyone using fireworks over the July 4th holidays. Question: I know that every person who ends up on a misdemeanor probation (and that is a ton of people) pays $50 to the Crime Stoppers fund. I seriously doubt that the fund ever pays out many rewards. I wonder how much money is sitting in the Wise County Crime Stoppers Fund. (If anybody at the Treasurer's Office or Sheriff's Office emails me with the answer, I'll tell you.)
