We give people the power
to speak up and stop crime
who we are
Making everyone feel safe, wherever they live.
By providing information that Crime Stoppers will share with law enforcement agencies, you are providing an important and valuable public service.
Each local Crime Stoppers chapter is a registered charitable society working with citizens, the media and law enforcement agencies to make their community safe.
We encourage people to share information about criminal activity, especially crimes such as illicit drug manufacturing, wanted persons, and illegal firearms.
Our Board is comprised of volunteers from across the province representing local Crime Stoppers programs, police services and other crime prevention partners.
The Board meets monthly to discuss new Crime Stoppers initiatives, community outreach activities and issues facing local programs.
The Crime Stoppers program was the brainchild of Canadian-born Detective Greg MacAleese in Albuquerque New Mexico in 1976. There are now more than 1700 Crime Stoppers programs worldwide in 32 countries.
The first Crime Stoppers chapter was established in BC in 1982. BC Crime Stoppers is an independent not-for-profit registered charity representing the independent community-based chapters throughout BC.
Our mandate is to work with the local Crime Stoppers chapters to engage the public to provide information about crimes anonymously. We deliver that information to the appropriate law enforcement agency, so that a crime – or potential crime – can be solved.
Speak up. Stay safe.

No matter which method you use your anonymity is protected if the information you provide is submitted in good faith. We don't use call display. We don't want your name, phone number or email address - we only want your information. You could receive a cash reward of up to $2000 upon an arrest and charge.
