 JANUARY PROCLAIMED

NATIONAL CRIME STOPPERS AWARENESS MONTH 

 

Prime Minster Justin Trudeau along with Provincial governments and local governments across the country have proclaimed January as a national awareness month for Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers encourages Canadians of all communities to get involved by reporting any suspicious or criminal activity anonymously. Crime Stoppers theme for 2022 is:

STAY SAFE

KEEP YOUR FAMILY SAFE

KEEP YOUR COMMUNITY SAFE

Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number and Web Tips to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime.

THE CRIME STOPPERS PROMISE OF ANONYMITY:
WHAT TIPSTERS NEED TO KNOW

By providing information that Crime Stoppers will share with law enforcement agencies, you are providing an important and valuable public service. We understand that disclosure of your identity might put you at risk. We do everything we can to protect your anonymity. However, that anonymity may be open to challenge in the following situations:

• A call to Crime Stoppers made with the intention of “furthering criminal activity or interfering with the administration of justice”. A party who is guilty of a crime cannot use Crime Stoppers to try to divert the blame onto someone else. Crime Stoppers cannot be used to try to “frame” an innocent person.

• There is evidence that disclosure of some or all of a tip is necessary to establish someone’s innocence. Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest or criminal conviction.

• A tipster having received the benefit of full legal advice may, for his or her own reasons, elect to waive the privilege.

For a fuller explanation of these principles, help us to help you by reading and understanding the “Tipster Information” on the Canadian Crime Stoppers website.
