"not just for the integrity of the program but for the safety of those who decide to use the program. But the promise of anonymity is not an impenetrable cloak of immunity for those who seek to abuse it.” (excerpt from CCSA News Release, dated Nov 8, 2017, regarding Supreme Court of Canada Decision: Durham Regional Crime Stoppers Inc. and X.Y. v. Her Majesty the Queen, 2017 SCC 45.

History of Crime Stoppers

The Crime Stoppers program was the brainchild of Canadian-born Detective Greg MacAleese in Albuquerque New Mexico in 1976.

The first programs in BC were formed in 1982 and the numbers grew culminating in the formation of the BC Crime Stoppers Society in 1994. Our mandate is to represent the independent community based programs at the provincial level. Today we number twenty-three programs who represent all areas of the province outside of the Metro Vancouver. We provide all communities that we represent with a number of messaging mediums allowing the public to forward information anonymously to Crime Stoppers, who in turn, deliver that information or intelligence to the appropriate enforcement agency, so that a crime or potential crime can be solved.

Multi-Language Translation Services

Crime Stoppers can take tips in 115 different languages. To provide information in a language other than English, follow these steps:

1) Call Crime Stoppers 24/7 at 1-800-222-8477 and tell the tip-taker the name of your preferred language.
2) The tip-taker will connect with the translation service that will translate the tip information.
3) The tipster, tip-taker and translator work together in a three-way call to get the tip information.
4) The tip-taker then provides the translated tip information to Crime Stoppers and to investigators.

We don't want your name. We just want your information.
