This site will provide you with information on the role of Nanaimo and District Crime Stoppers, which also covers the communities of Ladysmith and Gabriola Island.
Crime Stoppers is a cooperative program involving the community, media and police.
It is not a Police program and is ran by a dedicated group of community minded volunteers.
A Tipster's "Anonymity" is protected by law, in a Supreme Court of Canada decision known as R. v. Leipert.
Citizen's can provide anonymous information without fear of reprisal, without having to go to court, or providing their name.
Call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or click here to leave a "Web Tip."
Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display/ call tracing. You will never be asked to reveal your name, unless you so wish.
Crime Stoppers provides a confidential code number that is used for future communications, if you call back for updates.
Crime Stoppers provides cash rewards of up to $2,000 for information that leads to an arrest, the recovery of stolen property, or the seizure of illegal drugs. You will not have to go to court or testify.
The program does not receive any direct Government Funding, and therefore the program relies heavily on community support. Donations are used to cover the cost of paying tipsters, training, administration and on-going promotion of the program.
As of February 2012 Nanaimo and District Crime Stoppers program has received 4194 tips which resulted in 442 arrests and another 430 Police Cases cleared. This has resulted in the recovery of over $1,152,629.00 in stolen property and the removal of over $8,843,933.00 in drugs from our City streets. We have also authorized the payment of over $86,930 in tip rewards.
If you have any questions or wish to become involved with the local program, you can either write us a letter at the address below, or contact Community Policing at (250) 754-2345 and ask to speak to the Crime Stoppers Coordinator.
