DURHAM REGIONAL CRIME STOPPERS
YOU CAN SOLVE A CRIME
Students in the Durham Regional Police Service”s “Youth In Policing Program” assisted Durham Regional Crime Stoppers in producing a series of informative videos to help educate students, teachers and parents of some of the challenges facing kids in our schools today. The goal is to let youth, educators and family members know that there is a place when they can report inappropriate or illegal activity anonymously, without fear of repercussion.

Bicycle theft is of top concern to most bike owners. Each year thousands of bicycles are stolen across the country and in many cases never recovered. While many of the stolen bikes end up in police custody they are never returned to the owner due to lack of positive identification.
In fact, on average less than 10% of recovered property is returned to the owner.
Thieves also know that most bikes are rarely identified and count on this to easily sell stolen bikes and other property. In many cases the thieves will even take stolen property to other cities just to ensure that the chance of getting caught is reduced.
Don”t allow this to happen to your bike! By registering the bike you add international traceability which creates fear and uncertainty in the mind of the criminal and create barriers to profiting from property theft.
The National Bike Registry is a project supported by Canadian Crime Stoppers Association, Bicycle Trade Association of Canada and Norco.
Theft of metal, a serious risk to the community and emergency personnel.
Each year across North America, thieves are killed or seriously injured in efforts to steal copper and other metal from electrical facilities, industrial sites and homes.
These thefts also place the general public at risk by removing critical safety infrastructure which can cause fatal results kilometers from the site of the theft. In fact, destabilization of the electrical grid can cause potential fire hazards to home owners as well as businesses and can cause costly damage to electrical equipment.
Operation Hands Off is a coordinated program in cooperation with many Electrical Utility companies to prevent theft by marking metal with MicroDotDNA and Forensic markers for police identification.
The Canadian Association of Recycling Industries participates in this program and inspects material for identification at the recycling centers.
This program involves all stakeholders and you can be part of the solution.
