WHAT IS CRIME STOPPERS?
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 crimes that have been committed or are about to occur, and the whereabouts of wanted persons, stolen property, or illegal narcotics. The information you provide is forwarded anonymously to investigators who then respond back to us.
WHO OPERATES CRIME STOPPERS?
A group of concerned citizens comprise the Volunteer Board of Directors. It is the Board's duty to administer the program, control and raise funds, and manage the payment of rewards to tipsters. Crime Stoppers is incorporated as a charitable organization and therefore all cash donations are tax deductible. Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce is not a police program - our office and computer systems are not located in a police detachment or station.
When you call our toll-free number, 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or submit a secure Web Tip you will be assigned your own confidential code number to be used in all your future dealings with Crime Stoppers. You will not be asked or expected to identify yourself, and you will not have to appear in court - Crime Stoppers call takers and the police will not know who you are!
NO ONE WILL KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display, does not have *69 capability, and does not voice record tip conversations.
Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of criminals or the seizure of stolen property or illegal narcotics. Unlike other reward programs that stipulate payment upon "arrest and conviction", Crime Stoppers pays upon arrest only - your waiting time for a reward payout is greatly reduced! Rewards vary from $50 to $2,000 depending on the accuracy/usefulness of your information and the seriousness of the crime reported. Reward payouts are made anonymously and in cash only - even Crime Stoppers will not know who you are!
