News release

Each January, Crime Stoppers programs around the world celebrate Crime Stoppers Month to highlight their success and promote the largest crime solving and crime fighting programs in the world. "Recognizing Transnational Organized Crime" is this year's theme for Canadian Crime Stoppers programs.

The continued increase in human trafficking, infiltration of contraband and counterfeit goods which present health and economic threats, often under the direction of organized crime groups, the growing threat of cyber-crimes, the global demand for endangered and at risk wildlife are all threats that exist in communities all across Canada.

Since our inception in 1985, N.B. Crime Stoppers Inc. has assisted law enforcement agencies in solving more than 8,400 cases, resulting in more than 10,600 charges and 9,000 arrests. Their efforts have also resulted in the recovery of more than $8.6 million in property, the seizure of more than $71 million worth of drugs and more than $20.3 million in illegal contraband.

By working in partnership with the law enforcement agencies, the media and the public, Crime Stoppers can do a lot to help our communities in the fight against crime. With the help of all our dedicated volunteers, coordinators, supporters and partners, we will continue to fight crime in New Brunswick.

As President of N.B. Crime Stoppers Inc., I wish to thank the many volunteers, organizations, sponsors, businesses, law enforcement agencies, the media and the public that have contributed to the program's success. As President, it is my distinct honour to express my gratitude to everyone who has made N.B. Crime Stoppers Inc. what it is today.

If you have any information concerning an unsolved crime and wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), texting TIP212 + your message to 'CRIMES' (274637), or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest or successful conclusion of a crime. As always, we want your information, not your name.
