The theme this year is “Creating Partnerships Against Crime”
The foundation of Crime Stoppers is the partnership between the community, law enforcement and media. Crime Stoppers works to educate the public and create awareness on illegal activities in an effort to help promote the Canadian values of safety, empowerment and inclusion. Creating awareness and mobilizing Canadians in reporting suspicious or criminal activity anonymously requires a network of partners working together for a common end.
Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers thanks its many partners for their continued support and look forward to growing the program in the year ahead.
Newfound Cabs is continuing to improve the safety of our community by adding Crime Stoppers bumper stickers to its entire fleet. The 1-800-8477 tip line will be driven all over St. John’s & surrounding areas, reminding citizens they can anonymously report information and assist investigating agencies in their fight against criminal activity.
NL Crime Stoppers thanks Newfound Cabs for their ongoing support.
Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers will, with immediate effect, discontinue the Project Anonymous campaign in its entirety. We thank those who supported the effort as well as those who voiced their comments and concerns.
We ask everyone to remember that Crime Stoppers is a tool in the safety of our communities and as a charitable volunteer organization, the intent was and always will be for the positive good. While we expected debate and discussion, we did not foresee the negative messaging received.
We reiterate our message and assurance of “anonymity”.
“See Something, Say Something”
Crime Stoppers – Anonymous since 1992 in Newfoundland and Labrador
