Niagara College was the first college in Ontario to have its own Crime Stoppers program, which allows people to provide tips anonymously to help prevent crimes.
Crime Stoppers is a worldwide community based policing initiative that helps combat the growing upward trend in crime. The program allows for everyday citizens to assist police services by providing information about crime that will, is or has already happened within their community.
When an individual contacts Crime Stoppers they remain anonymous to further encourage those in the community to fight back against crime, without having to fear retribution for standing up for their community.
Citizens can offer anonymous tips by phone, text (SMS), or online. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to caller ID and has no way of identifying the tipster. You will never be called to court to testify and you may be eligible to collect a reward of up to $2000 if the tip leads to an arrest.
