January is Crime Stoppers Month
Each January, Crime Stoppers programs, operating in 28 countries around the world, celebrate Crime Stoppers Month to highlight their successes and promote their service. It is estimated that a crime is solved every 14 minutes due to information provided by a Crime Stoppers tip.
Halton Crime Stoppers has been very successful. In our 25 year history, information from tips has resulted in over 1,000 arrests, the seizure of over 100 weapons and the recovery of $20 million of stolen property and illegal drugs. According to Statistics Canada Crime Severity Index for 2012, Halton Region is the safest community over 100,000 in Canada in which to live.
"This doesn't mean we don't have any crime, because we do," says Crime Stoppers of Halton Chair, Norman Bellefontaine. "We still need to bear down and make our community even safer. Crime Stoppers is one of the tools in the safety toolkit and I encourage you to use it to its fullest."
If you have information on any unsolved crime, and wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit your information online by clicking "Submit a Tip Online." You can also provide information by texting "TIP201" plus your message to CRIMES (274637). If your tip is helpful in leading to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.00.
