arrests, 44 charges and almost $200,000 in goods recovered. Since the start of the program, 3288 charges were laid with more than $7M in goods recovered.
“For over 20 years, community minded individuals across the province have worked with the public, media and our provincial police and peace officers to make Crime Stoppers a success,” said Brown. “Crime Stoppers Month is an opportunity to acknowledge the volunteers and their hard work and how we collectively make our communities safer places to call home.”
Started in 1992, Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers is a community-based program and registered chari y. It brings the public, media and law enforcement agencies together in cooperative effort to help solve crime by offering cash awards and guaranteeing anonymity to
