RECEPTION 5.30 pm
Founded in 1984, Toronto Crime Stoppers is 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 and are eligible for a cash reward if their Tips lead to an arrest or a seizure of weapons, drugs or stolen property.
The media plays an important role in the success of Toronto Crime Stoppers by highlighting information on unsolved crimes and wanted persons on radio, television, print and social media. Toronto Crime Stoppers also engages the public through it's website,You Tube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram platforms.
Toronto Crime Stoppers is administered by a civilian Board of Directors who are responsible for the approval and payment of cash rewards, fundraising, governance community outreach and the development of public awareness campaigns such as our Cash For Guns, Anonymous, Cooking With Molly, Retail Crime and Human Trafficking initiatives. Toronto Crime Stoppers is a registered charity and does not receive government funding. The ability to develop effective public awareness campaigns, community outreach programs and the payment of cash rewards is dependent on individual donations and the success of our Annual Dinner and Golf Tournament.
The Toronto Police staff assigned to the program bring information about unsolved crimes or wanted persons to the public's attention, analyze, disseminate and monitor the Tips that are received and make recommendations for cash rewards when a case is solved or a suspect arrested. The officers also participate in community events and have a strong presence in our schools bringing important messages to our vulnerable youth. Topics include bullying and social media awareness.
Toronto Crime Stoppers has a history of success. In 2018 Toronto Crime Stoppers program fielded 12,7013 tips, resulting in 126 arrests, and 463 charges laid. $265,417 in property was recovered, and $1,119,671 in illegal narcotics was seized.
