CRIME STOPPERS and DURHAM REGIONAL POLICE are asking for your help to solve a series of mischiefs that have been occurring in Whitby. Since early July, there have been at least 3 incidents of damage to the property and buildings at the Kids Safety Village located on grounds of Sir William Stephenson Public School. Unknown suspects have entered the property by scaling the fence and once inside, they have broken windows, damaged walk signals and traffic lights, and destroyed a scale model of the village and also tried to set it on fire. The Kids’ Safety Village is an integral part of Durham Region focusing on the safety of our children.  The Village was made possible because of local businesses, citizens and service clubs.  Damage to properties such as this affects everyone in our community. At this time, damage is listed at a minimum of $10 000.

CRIME STOPPERS would like to remind the citizens of Durham Region of the increased number of incidents related to Human Trafficking. Often referred to as sex slavery, there are numerous victims who are being forced into situations because of threats of violence, physical and psychological intimidation. Young women, typically 12-18 years old, are being exploited in the sex trade at the hands of predators. Victims are isolated from their families and friends and regularly moved from one hotel to the next to avoid detection. If you are staying in a hotel or motel near major thoroughfares, be aware of some of the warning signs of Human Trafficking:

  • A female who appears fearful of or under the control of another person
  • Constant flow of traffic to or from their hotel room
  • Travelling with minimal luggage or inappropriate belongings
  • A younger female travelling with an older male companion

If you or someone you know has been a victim of Human Trafficking, please call police or Crime Stoppers.

CRIME STOPPERS will pay up to $2000 cash for ANY information that leads to an arrest in this or ANY criminal matter.  Callers never need to give their name or testify in court and we do NOT use call display. Remember: CRIME doesn’t pay but Crime Stoppers does.
