Take a Bite out of Crime
Monday, April 2, 2007
Crime Stoppers is a non-profit community organization that works with police, media, and the public, to help create a safe and violence-free environment within residence, campus and the Guelph community.
And Crime Stoppers really works too! To date, in Wellington County, Crime Stoppers has taken over $25,000,000 in both property recovered and narcotics off the street. It’s closed 2000 cases, leveled 3000 charges and has paid out $101,845 in rewards.
Debuting in 1998, Crime Stoppers of Wellington County encourages you to call their toll-free number with information about crimes about to be committed or those that have already occurred. The program is anonymous and the information given is kept in strict confidence. Crime Stoppers will forward the information to the appropriate police authorities.
If the tips you provide lead to a charge or arrest, you will be eligible for a cash reward between $50 and $2,000. Rewards are distributed through pre-arranged pickup spots, like area bank branches. You never have to give your name, testify in court or deal with police. There is no call display, *69 or recorded conversations. You can be confident that your name will never be revealed.
Do your part and help keep Guelph safe: if you have a tip, call Crime Stoppers!
