Ensuring your anonymity
We know the guarantee of anonymity that comes with contacting Crime Stoppers is vitally important to you…..the entire premise of the program.
It makes it easier for you to come forward breaking the silence around criminal activity and removing your fear. Anonymity makes the difference.
You will not be required to reveal your name at any time
You will not have to make a police statement
You will not appear in court
Your call will not be recorded, call display is removed from the telephone line
Your call or online form will not be traced
We create a report from the information that you give us. Our advisors will check this report to ensure that it contains no information which might identify you. Eg: if the call is about your neighbor, we won’t mention this, so that you will never be linked to the suspect by geography. We don’t even make a note of your gender or the date and time you called.
Did you know...
Crime Stoppers’ promise of anonymity has NEVER been broken. It has been sanctioned by the Supreme Court of Canada.
If the identity of one of our callers were ever made known, it would destroy the trust in Crime Stoppers and no one would contact us. This is another reason why it is so important to us that we can guarantee your anonymity.
To give information to Crime Stoppers you may contact us in one of the following ways:
- By land-line phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
- By “Tipsubmit” or click on link
- By SMS or text message from your cell phone. Send your message to “CRIMES”, and have “TIP307” at the beginning of the body of the message.
