It’s Crime Stoppers Month and Northern BC Crime Stoppers would like to share some exciting news about your award winning program! Now entering it’s 36th year, the program expanded it’s reach through Northern BC and reached nearly 1,000 tips in 2020! A couple of months ago, PG Crime Stoppers officially changed its name to Northern BC Crime Stoppers and now serves over 30 communities. We are taking tips north to the Yukon border, south to Williams Lake, west to Smithers, and east to the Alberta border.
In 2020, the Northern BC Crime Stoppers Program received a record of 997 tips (up from 700 in 2019) from YOU! Those tips resulted in 31 arrests (up from 14 in 2019), 10 cases cleared, and 11 cash rewards approved. As well, $144,000 worth of drugs were seized and $7,500 in cash was recovered!
The Board of Directors of Northern BC Crime Stoppers would like to thank the citizens of Northern BC for continuing to provide vital information that has led to a record year for tips and arrests in 2020.
We would also like to thank the hard working and dedicated members of the RCMP for continuing to support this crime fighting program.
There are two ways to submit a tip to Northern BC Crime Stoppers anonymously 24-7, 365 days a year: The traditional method of calling 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) and providing information to a trained operator is still very popular. As an increasingly popular alternative, you can submit a typed tip via our website at www.pgcrimestoppers.bc.ca.
As one of the many Crime Stopper programs throughout the country, Northern BC Crime Stoppers is a proud partnership of the local media, police and residents of Northern BC. Northern BC Crime Stoppers is a not-for-profit society run independently of the police by everyday citizens like you. All information received is anonymous and is provided to the police in the hopes it will further investigations and lead to arrests, seizures and recovered property.
