ABOUT TORONTO CRIME STOPPERS
Founded in 1984, Toronto Crime Stoppers is a registered non-profit charity that does not receive government funding. This community safety program bridges a partnership between the police, the media and the community that enables concerned members of the public to anonymously provide information on the identity of a criminal or incidents of criminal activity. All Tips received by Toronto Crime Stoppers are forwarded to the appropriate police agency for investigation. Callers are never required to give their name or testify in court.
WHERE DOES THE FUNDING GO
Toronto Crime Stoppers is administered by a civilian Board of Directors who are responsible for all fundraising efforts and the approval of Community Reward Program initiatives, such as the Beyond Academics Homework Club which provides youth essential life skills in a safe welcoming environment where they are given the opportunity to be the best versions of themselves. The Board is also responsible for directing funds towards youth engagement programs and the development of public awareness campaigns such as Cash For Guns, Organized Crime and Human Trafficking campaigns.
Toronto Crime Stoppers has a history of success. Since inception the program has received 187,226 tips that have helped solve or prevent crimes like homicides, armed robberies, abductions/human trafficking, identified fentanyl drug dealers, helped take guns off our streets and so much more. resulting in over 11,665 arrests and 40,379 charges laid with over $67,000,000.00 in property recovered and $333,000,000 in seized narcotics.
