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......
