Recipient: Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers and Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers North East Avalon Branch

Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers and Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers North East Avalon Branch were nominated for the Chief of Police Citizens Recognition Award by Cst. R. Robinson.

Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers is a community-based volunteer organization and a registered charity. They began in October of 1992 with one branch in the St. John's area, the North East Avalon Branch.  Since that time, Crime Stoppers has expanded to ten branches which are located throughout the province. Crime Stoppers presently has in excess of 150 volunteers comprised of many diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement and other investigative agencies to receive information on crimes. The efforts of Crime Stoppers increase tips on crime, which in turn increase arrests in our community.

As of January 18, 2016 Crime Stoppers activities have resulted in 2,614 arrests being made, 3,838 cases which were cleared and $270,950 in rewards paid out for tips received. In addition to this they had $3,454,224 in property recovered and $7,197,829 in drugs seized.

Other programs of Crime Stoppers in Newfoundland and Labrador include; Police and Peace Officer of the Year Awards, the School Program and the Illegal Dumping program.

 One of the primary functions of this team of volunteers is to raise the level of awareness of Crime Stoppers throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. They regularly attend community events in an effort to provide information about Crime Stoppers and how it works. To help raise awareness in 2015, the North East Avalon Branch of Crime Stoppers hosted a very successful RCMP Musical Ride this past August at the Mount Pearl Intermediate School Soccer Field.

As a result of exemplary dedication and thanks to the countless hours of volunteer time put forth by the Crime Stoppers Volunteers Newfoundland and Labrador is and continues to be a safe place for all citizens to live and raise their families.

Tips on Avoiding Phone and Email Scammers
April 29, 2015

More tips on avoiding phone and email scammers
In a column written by Sharon Elliott, RCMP Senior Safety officer, “ In my last article, I wrote about scammers who are spoofing the caller i.d. feature on our telephones. Many residents in our area have been targeted and have reported receiving a call from what appeared to be a local area number, but upon answering find out the call contains an automated message with an offer involving a hotel stay. Since then, many more residents have reported receiving calls that show their own telephone number appearing in the call display…The same problem can happen in our email accounts. The name of the sender of an email message can be manipulated to make it appear as though the message is coming from a friend, or even include our own names. That’s why it’s important to give your emails a good look over before clicking them open…” Annapolis County Spectator
