What better way to take a bite out of crime than a Crime Stoppers BBQ!
Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce Inc is excited to announce we will be having a fundraising BBQ at Giant Tiger at the Galaxy/No Frills Plaza, Owen Sound. The BBQ will be held Saturday August 19, 2017 from 11 am until 5 pm. Drop by for a grilled burger or dog and a drink and help Crime Stoppers continue to serve your community for another 30 years! All Proceeds go to the Crime Stoppers program. Crime Stoppers would like to thank Giant Tiger for their generous support. Giant Tiger has long enjoyed a much-deserved reputation as a solid community citizen in Owen Sound and surrounding area.
Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce is celebrating 30 years this year. We are a community based program that combines the Public, Media and Police in a co-operative effort to solve crime. Crime Stoppers is NOT a police or government program but a registered charity overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors. Crime Stoppers relies on donations from the community to cover tip payments, operating expenses and our one paid employee.
Through our anonymous tip line and website, Crime Stoppers takes tips from the Public and passes that information to Police (or other organisations such as SPCA, Ministry of Natural Resources etc.) ensuring the anonymity of the “Tipster”.
In Crime Stoppers' 30 years our tips have resulted in over 51 MILLION DOLLARS worth of drugs seized and property recovered, over 1,500 arrests and have paid out over $125,000 to “Tipsters” in the Grey and Bruce region alone.
