How the Program Works

Crime Stoppers is a non-profit, non-police organization that pays cash for anonymous crime tips. The program encourages the public to communicate information regarding criminal activity. Crime Stoppers will share this information with the police or other agencies to assist in their investigations.

When you call Crime Stoppers you will be assigned a special code number, which you will use to identify yourself for all future contact with Crime Stoppers personnel. Your call will never be traced or recorded, and Crime Stoppers does not use call display. You will be known only by your code number. If your information leads to a charge or an arrest, you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.

The Success of Crime Stoppers

Since its inception in April, 1986, Durham Regional Crime Stoppers has received almost 24,000 hot line calls.  It has been responsible for the arrest of over 3,300 criminals resulting in over 9,000 charges and the clearing of 3,350 criminal cases. These cases have lead to the recovery of almost $7 million dollars in stolen property and the seizure of over $71 million dollars in narcotics. 

In 1995, Durham Regional Crime Stoppers introduced their Student Crime Stoppers Awareness program to the high school community throughout Durham Region. A total of 19 area schools have partnered with Crime Stoppers to encourage the student community to use Crime Stoppers as a way to report crime.

A community-minded group of board of Directors is comprised of people from all walks of life. The success of this program is found in its unique partnership with the public, news media and the police.
