Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization founded on May 8, 1996. After becoming active in 1997, it operated under the name Info-Crime Québec until a name change in October 2012. It administers a program that gives Quebec residents a way to report crimes anonymously. The concept was developed based on the principles of Canada’s Crime Stoppers program. Thanks to the hard work of the initial volunteers, our program is now a success.
Crime Stoppers activities result in criminal arrests, seizure of stolen goods and narcotics, faster progress of certain police investigations, and raised community awareness of crime prevention.
Crime Stoppers administers and supports a network of affiliated regional groups in Quebec to help promote the organization, funding and raised awareness for regional residents.
The program is managed by volunteers and based on cooperation between police, the media and the community, to prevent and stop crime. Crime Stoppers is funded by government grants, community fundraising activities, and direct fundraising.
Together, we make up Crime Stoppers!
