Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers is a partnership of the public, police and media that provides the community with a proactive program for people to assist the police anonymously to solve crimes, thereby contributing to an improved quality of life.

About Student Crime Stoppers

The Student Crime Stoppers Program encourages students who have any information that will assist investigators to call Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477 (TIPS), toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS or through an online form on their website.  Crime Stoppers takes information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Calls are not recorded and Crime Stoppers does not have call display, guaranteeing that your identity remains anonymous. People providing information will be given a secret code number. If your tip leads to an arrest, you may earn a cash reward of up to $2,000, which can be claimed with your code number.  You will never be asked to identify yourself or testify in court.  We now have operators working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Crime Stoppers can take information in any one of 140 languages.  However, for reasons of security Crime Stoppers cannot receive tips via email.

This program is designed to bring students, the community and police together to create a harmonious and safe learning environment.  Students have the right to learn and live their daily lives without having their property stolen, being harassed, threatened, or assaulted.

Why Student Crime Stoppers

Silence never solves a problem.  By contacting Crime Stoppers you are taking control.  Crimes such as threatening, assault, vandalism, weapons, and drugs will be reduced.  You never have to identify yourself, or testify in court.  The cash reward you may receive is the schools way of affirming that you have done the right thing.
