Crime Stoppers chapters across Canada are promoting the theme of  “Be A Crime Stopper, Keep your community Safe” this year and marking January as the official Crime Stoppers month.

According to the organization, the Crime Stoppers program includes an anonymous tip line 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) for concerned citizens to report suspicious or illegal activities.

There are more than 1,700 Crime Stoppers chapters operating globally, with 87 in Canada and 37 in Ontario. The initiative was created as a collaboration between the public, media and police to help prevent and solve serious crimes.

Peel Crime Stoppers is one of the chapters operating in Ontario and “is committed to the continue collaboration with community stakeholders to focus on initiatives aimed at helping strengthen the safety and well-being for citizens in Peel region,” according to a statement issued by Peel chairperson Imran Hasan.
