2/16/2017 - Campbell River RCMP Looking to Educate Local Businesses on Theft Prevention

Campbell RCMP is looking to establish a network of business owners, employees & loss prevention officers to get together and form a coalition to combat theft from local businesses! This is in response to a rash of theft in our local area; RCMP have been receiving an unusually high amount of shoplifting complaints as well as overnight thefts from businesses over the last several months.

"What we`ve found when speaking to businesses, is they don`t really understand what they can do about the theft or how best to prevent it. Even businesses that are large enough to hire a loss prevention officer feel there is a need to have everyone on the same page and have a forum to speak with police & educate themselves on the expectations and legalities of dealing with thieves", said Cst. Sara Clark the Media Relations officer for Campbell river RCMP.

They have already had two meetings which were well received & they are looking for other business owners, LPO`s and employees to attend & join.

The next meeting will be Tuesday, February 21st, 2017 at 1300 hrs. Anyone planning on attending must preregister by contacting Kristine at (250)286-5666. 

UPDATE 2017FEB21:

Thanks to everyone that was able to make it today to this meeting! We had an extremely good turnout with lots of positive discussion. We look forward to seeing you & any others that may want to attend the next meeting scheduled for Thursday, March 30th at 1PM.

2/13/2015 - Campbell River Crime Stoppers Annual Statistics

Press Release 2015-01-30

2013 was the best year ever for Campbell River Crime Stoppers,

But 2014 was even BETTER!

...

In 2014 the amount of stolen property and drugs seized totaled $198,290! The tip line received 402 calls, resulting in 325 tips. As a direct result of these tips 63 arrest were made. There were 111 cases cleared from 91 charges laid! Very impressive numbers!
This success was accomplished with the help of our media friends “getting the word out” as well as extensive use of face book, twitter and the Crime Stoppers Web site. Our views on face book was in excess of 300,000! This year our views on face book ,Calls taken and tips received are all up 25% Arrests made is up a massive 125% and cases cleared up 132%!
Since its inception in 1990 Campbell River Crime Stoppers has received 4,853 tips, this has resulted in $373,527 in property and $9,289,858 in illicit drugs being recovered.

Crime Stoppers is an effective vehicle that allows citizens to ANONYMOUSLY supply the police with information about a crime or potential crime of which they may have knowledge WITH OUT FEAR OF REPRISAL.

We are an independent non-profit society and registered charity that is managed by a volunteer board of directors who work in partnership with the police, media and local citizens. Crime Stoppers is dependent on public support to raise funds for advertising and the granting of awards for tips.

Campbell River Crime Stoppers has several events planned for 2015 in May we will be holding our second annual Mobile Document Shredding Fundraiser, this is ideal for citizens that need documents destroyed. Join us and with your donation you can witness the destruction of your records. The Kinsmen will be hosting a barbeque to help raise funds for Crime Stoppers as well. We can’t thank our friends at R&R Shredding enough for supporting this event.

In June, we are looking at doing our very popular Jail & Bail. Give some thought who you would like to see arrested and held until they can raise bail for freedom? Over the years we have arrested our Mayor, Prominent business leaders and lawyers. It a fun event to watch and have a Foot Long Hot Dog cooked by volunteers for a small donation.

The continued success of Crime Stoppers depends on the community supporting our fundraising events and becoming members.

We encourage you to visit our website and become a proud sponsor of the Campbell River Crime Stoppers program.

Thank you for your support......

Campbell River Crime Stoppers releases annual statistics

2012 was a busy year for Campbell River Crime Stoppers. Despite not having a full time Coordinator for about six months, the numbers were up across the board. According to Crime Stoppers President Judy Shepley, "Our new Coordinator, Pat Patterson, is doing a wonderful job of getting the word out on our website, Facebook page and Twitter. Next year should be even better".

Over 317 calls were taken by Crime Stoppers in 2012, resulting in 304 tips. As a direct result of these tips, 25 arrests were made, 32 charges were laid and 68 cases cleared. Over $54,000 in illegal drugs were seized and destroyed and $2100 in stolen property was recovered. Most of the tips came from concerned citizens who were not interested in getting a cash reward, but several reward payments were made up to the amount of $500.

The organization`s website (www.campbellrivercrimestoppers.com) is still very popular with residents of Campbell River. In particular this last quarter the numbers of hits to the web pages has increased dramatically. In December alone, the Wanted Suspects page was visited over 6,000 times. The current website offers 15 pages of information.

In October 2012 Facebook was introduced as a Social Media tool to increase the publicity for Campbell River Crime Stoppers program. Since then there have been over 90 posts onto the site. As a direct result of these posts there have been 64 tips received. There have been 18 arrests made of people appearing on face book on the wanted page, and a further seven people were identified who were not known to police. The numbers of visits to the face book page are increasing month by month and over this last quarter there have been over 28,000 views. The highest number of views for one incident being for the graffiti “tagging issues” at Willow Point.

Twitter was also introduced in October 2012, the response has been good and the numbers are picking up. There have been over 170 “Tweets” posted since this date, with 43 people/businesses following. 1 tip has so far been generated as a direct result of a message from Twitter. These numbers will increase as the site becomes known. Links to the Crime Stoppers Twitter and Facebook pages can be found on the Crime Stoppers website.

Since its inception in 1990, Campbell River Crime Stoppers has received 4,231 Tips which have resulted in 998 cases cleared and 452 arrests. $64,290 has been paid in rewards and a whopping $8,979,373 in drugs and property have been recovered. Funding for the organization comes entirely from private donations, Corporate Memberships and local fundraising efforts like the now semi-annual Jail and Bail. The Board of Directors is working on a new idea to replace the Jail and Bail in the off years.
