A community crime fighting multiplier for 35 years
Crime Stoppers is a community based program that combines the police, media, and members of the public in a co-operative effort to solve crime. Crime Stoppers encourages people to call our toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS, (8477) phone number or submit a secure Web Tip with information about any criminal activity in their communities. The information shared is forwarded anonymously to law enforcement investigators.
Crime Stoppers is a group of concerned citizens comprised of a Volunteer Board of Directors. This Board administers the program, controls and raises funds, and manages the payment of rewards to Tipsters. Crime Stoppers is incorporated as a charitable organization and therefore all cash donations are tax deductible.
Citizens who supply tips will not be asked, or expected, to identify themselves, and they will not have to appear in court – Crime Stoppers call-takers and the police will not know who you are!
To keep up to date on these events go to the Facebook pages of Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce or the web page at crimestop-gb.org. You may also get much more information through the new TIPSTER Magazine, downloadable at the Crime Stoppers Web page.
