Crime Stoppers is a non-profit charitable organization that combines the best efforts of the community, the media and the police in the fight against crime. Each week the media appeals for information about unsolved crimes. A Crime of the Week is highlighted in newspaper articles, radio and television spots. People are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers anonymously to report any information that may help solve this or any other crime.
A group of dedicated, concerned citizens make up the civilian Board of Directors for Durham Region Crime Stoppers. It is the foundation behind the program. Board members raise, control and administer funds; organize reward payments to callers and promote the program.
