New Donations By LA City Council, Board Of Supervisors Bring Dorner Reward To $1.2M

LOS ANGELES ( — The Los Angeles City Council and the Board of Supervisors voted  Tuesday morning to increase the $1 million reward in the manhunt for triple-murder suspect Christopher Dorner.


Each board voted to donate an additional $100,000 for information leading to the identification, apprehension, and conviction of Dorner. The total reward now stands at $1.2 million.

“The hope is that the monetary reward will serve as an incentive for the public to provide additional information so that this suspect will be located and apprehended,” City Council spokesperson Jessica Tarman said.

On Sunday, a $1 million reward was offered with the help of AEG, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and leaders from businesses, unions, government, law enforcement and community groups throughout the region.

It is the largest of its kind to ever be offered in the Los Angeles area.

The LAPD has received more than 1,000 tips about his whereabouts since the initial reward was offered, Lt. Andy Neiman said.

The Riverside Board of Supervisors is also considering donating $100,000 to the total reward.
