January is internationally recognized as Crime Stoppers Month, where more than 1,200 Crime Stoppers programs in more than 20 countries around the world celebrate their successes in making their communities safer.

It was another great year for Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers - receiving almost 900 tips which resulted in 58 arrests, the apprehension of four fugitives, and the recovery of over $53,000 in property and drugs.

These successes would not have been possible without the support of our major sponsors and partners: the RCMP, SARM, SUMA, Kinsmen and Kinettes Clubs of Saskatchewan, CTV, SaskTel, DirectWest, SGI, Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation, and Saskatchewan radio stations.

Sgt. Rob Cozine, RCMP Police Co-ordinator for Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers, reminds the public “Crime doesn’t pay but Crime Stoppers does. Cash payments of up to $2,000 can be awarded in exchange for information leading to an arrest or charge.”

Tips can be submitted anonymously by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.saskcrimestoppers.com or by texting “TIP206” and your tip to CRIMES (274637).

Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers is a civilian, non-profit organization that creates safer communities by giving the public a way to report criminal activity to law enforcement anonymously.

Founded in 1987, Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers works with the RCMP to provide anonymous reports of criminal activity in Saskatchewan’s rural municipalities, cities, towns, villages, and First Nations communities. There are four other Crime Stoppers programs operating within the province working with their local police departments: the Regina Crime Stoppers, Saskatoon Crime Stoppers, Prince Albert Crime Stoppers, and Moose Jaw Crime Stoppers.
