Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers is a program that began in 1976 and offers complete anonymity for tips that help to solve crimes.  It is run by community members who are all volunteers, and is a not for profit organization.  The Haliburton Crime Stoppers Program was established in 1989 and is completely funded through community donations.  Board members take an Oath of Secrecy and work independently of the police.  In 2011, 369 tips were received resulting in 346 arrests and 613 charges.  Tips can now be done on the web, and 86 web-tips were received in 2011. Phone: 1-800-222-TIPS  or via the Internet.
