You’re anonymous, they’re not
Do you know something about a crime that’s happened? Don’t know how to report it? Don’t want to get involved in court, but think that the police should do something? The Supreme Court of Canada supports your anonymous status when you contact Crime Stoppers with information. You remain 100 per cent anonymous to the police and the courts and to Crime Stoppers itself.
If you know something about a crime, then call, text or email Crime Stoppers to report what you know. Your information and identity remain anonymous, so please do not add any information that could identify you such as your email address, your name, or your phone number.
After you have sent your tip, by any method, you will receive a confirmation with your reference number. Do not loose that number. You will need this reference number for any follow-up and remember, do not identify yourself in anyway.
Leave a secure tip online
If you have information about a crime you can now provide an anonymous tip online using the Crime Stoppers secure and encrypted web-tip form. Go to www.tipsubmit.com and submit a tip (submit it to city/region “Squamish” if you are reporting something that happened on Bowen Island).
• You will never be identified.
• Crime Stoppers doesn’t use call display. (Your information will stay anonymous. The operators are actually in Eastern Canada so they won’t even know who you are.)
• Crime Stoppers doesn’t want your name, phone number or email address ... we only want your information.
• You will never have to testify in court.
• You could receive a cash reward of up to $2,000 upon an arrest and charge. (For reward purposes, you will be given a unique code/reference number. Do not disclose it to anyone other than the tip operator when you call the Crime Stopper office to inquire about your reward.)
Crime Stoppers maintains the 24/7 tip line at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) province-wide for anonymous information on a crime and provides a cash reward up to $2000 upon an arrest and charge for a tip.
If you know something that may help solve a crime, then let the police know about it by reporting it to Crime Stoppers.
Without your help, crime might go undetected by the police. Bring those people to justice that you know are causing harm to our community.
