HOW IT WORKS


HowItWorks

THE CRIME STOPPERS PROMISE OF ANONYMITY:

WHAT TIPSTERS NEED TO KNOW

By providing information that Crime Stoppers will share with law enforcement agencies, you are providing an important and valuable public service.  We understand that disclosure of your identity might put you at risk.  We do everything we can to protect your anonymity.  However, that anonymity may be open to challenge in the following situations:

  • A call to Crime Stoppers made with the intention of “furthering criminal activity or interfering with the administration of justice”.  A party who is guilty of a crime cannot use Crime Stoppers to try to divert the blame onto someone else.  Crime Stoppers cannot be used to try to “frame” an innocent person.
  • There is evidence that disclosure of some or all of a tip is necessary to establish someone’s innocence.
  • A tipster having received the benefit of full legal advice may, for his or her own reasons, elect to waive the privilege.

For a fuller explanation of these principles, help us to help you by reading and understanding the “Tipster Information” on the Canadian Crime Stoppers website.

 

If you have any information about a crime, use one of the methods outlined below to contact a Crime Stoppers program and guarantee your anonymity.Crime Stoppers will not take tips from victims. If you are a victim of a crime, report directly to the Police Department at 519-653-7700, or, in the case of an emergency or a crime in progress, please call 911.

    1. Telephone | 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)

Crime Stoppers does not want to know who you are. We do not subscribe to “Call Display”, or “Call Trace”, and we do not record phone conversations, or take any action that may identify you, the caller. When you call, you will be given a confidential code number. Do not, under any circumstances, give that number to anyone else. This is the only way we can link you to your tip information. Depending on the information and crime, you will be asked to call back at certain intervals to obtain an update on your information. Since we do not know you, or your phone number, YOU have to initiate any contact with us.

Do not use a cell phone when calling, as these calls could be monitored by scanners. Use a secure land line number to call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
