The Canadian Crime Stoppers Association (CCSA), with the support of Suncor have created two video presentations to be utilized in both physical and virtual classrooms by secondary schools throughout Canada. The videos are intended to draw attention to the seriousness of bullying within our schools and to educate students on the role that Crime Stoppers plays in helping all communities stay safe.
“There are 87 Crime Stoppers programs that provide support to all communities across Canada. These videos are a welcome addition to our awareness initiatives as they provide education and insights, as well as draw attention to the serious impact that bullying may have on youth within our schools. Crime Stoppers is a valuable tool in Helping All Communities Stay Safe,” said CCSA President David Forster.
School communities are just part of the Crime Stoppers mandate. Today, more than ever, the need to report crime anonymously and confidentially is vital to the wellbeing of all Canadians. The role of Crime Stoppers, and specifically CCSA, is to serve as the "middleman" for members of the public who want to report criminal activity, but do not want to share this information directly to police. Tipsters who report this information to CCSA never have to give their name or testify in court. If their information is used in an arrest, they are eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
This volunteer-run service started in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1976 and is alive and well in communities large and small across Canada. For more information on Crime Stoppers, contact your local program. To learn about CCSA, go to www.canadiancrimestoppers.org
