About Crime Stoppers
Crime Stoppers is an organization that links the police, the media and you (the pubic) in a joint effort to help reduce crime and make our communities a safe place to raise our families and conduct business. The role of each of these units is for the media to publicize information about crime, the public to provide information through anonymous calls and the police to investigate the information received. Arrangements are provided to permit anonymous text messages and e-mails. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to caller identification so the caller’s name will never be revealed. Crime Stoppers wants your information. Not your Name.
Has Crime Stoppers Helped You?
You may be unaware that a phone call to Cape Breton Crime Stoppers may have led to the arrest of a drug dealer in your neighborhood or stopped drugs from being distributed in a school attended by your children. Pertinent information obtained through Crime Stoppers has helped investigators solve cases of murders and manslaughter as well as other serious offences of robberies and break and enters. In fact since inception in 1987, callers helped solve 825 cases, helped remove over $3,924,242 in illicit drugs from the streets of our communities and help recover over$1,244,293 in stolen goods. These statistics confirm that Crime Stoppers is a very effective program.
How May You Help Crime Stoppers
Anyone who has ever been involved with a non-profit organization has experienced the difficulties of raising the necessary funds just to keep the programs afloat. Cape Breton Crime Stoppers is no different. Some funding is provided by CBRM but the majority of funds are raised by the membership of the volunteer board through their own initiatives. Previously Crime Stoppers shared a fund raising project with another program that involved soliciting funds by a telemarketer. This has since been rejected by Cape Breton Crime Stoppers membership on the moral grounds that the bigger, share of the funds were reaped by the telemarketer. This fund raiser now lost, has provided a significant contribution to meet our operating expenses. Funding has to be found to replace the loss of this fundraiser. Cape Breton Crime Stoppers urges you to support our program. All monies donated to Cape Breton Crime Stoppers is utilized exclusively by our board members in the administration of our program here in Cape Breton. Any donation you can make will be greatly appreciated. An official tax receipt will be issued for your donation.
