About BC Crime Stoppers Society

The British Columbia Crime Stoppers Society is the umbrella organization for individual community-based Crime Stoppers programs in the province. We provide standards, communication, training, dispute resolution, legal support, insurance, promotion, and other similar items that ensure the security, productivity and longevity of all of the community programs.

Each local Crime Stoppers Association is a registered charitable society working with citizens, the media and law enforcement agencies to make their community safe.

Our Board is made up of Directors elected from the member programs.

Thank You for the Support

British Columbia Crime Stoppers Society acknowledges the financial assistance of the Province of British Columbia.

History of Crime Stoppers

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

The BC Crime Stoppers Association became a reality in 1994 as the provincial voice for the 43 member programs across the province. As the first programs formed in 1982 and the numbers grew in the following decades, the provincial association became a necessity and then a reality.

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.
