Student Crime Stoppers


About Crime Stoppers

Mission Statement

Crime Stoppers is a partnership of the public, police and media which provides the community with a proactive program for people to anonymously assist the police in solving crime, contributing to an improved quality of life.

About Student Crime Stoppers

The Student Crime Stoppers Program encourages students with information concerning a criminal activity to call 1800 222-TIPS anonymously. Callers never have to give their name or testify in court. The call is taken anonymously and given a code number for reference. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display. We now have operators working around the clock 24 hrs. a day, 7 days a week. If your tip leads to an arrest you can earn a cash reward of up to $1,000.00. Crime Stoppers can take information in any one of 140 languages. However, for reasons of security, Crime Stoppers can’t receive tips via e-mail.

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.

The first student Crime Stoppers Program within Metropolitan Toronto was officially launched as a Pilot Project at West Humber Collegiate Institute in the City of Etobicoke on April 5th, 1994. The first step in the implementation process involved setting up a Student Board of Directors composed mainly of well motivated students, including an administrator of the school - (teacher/mentor) a police officer and school trustee. The program was so well received W.H.C.I. has continued as the model for other schools coming on board.

Why Student Crime Stoppers

Silence never solves a problem.

By calling 1800-222-TIPS you are taking control. Crimes such as threatening, assault, vandalism, weapons, and drugs will be reduced by calling 1800-222-TIPS. You never have to identify yourself, or testify in court. The cash reward you may receive is the school’s way of affirming that you have done the right thing.


Information from callers has led to arrests in homicides, armed robberies, sexual assaults and drug trafficking operations. Results speak for themselves. Since 1984, when Toronto and Regional Crime Stoppers was launched, the program has been responsible for:

  • Making 9500 arrests
  • Laying over 31,000 criminal charges, and
  • Seizing a total of $270 million in drugs and property
