Over 1,700 tips received through Crime Stoppers in 2019

January is National Crime Stoppers Month

January is National Crime Stoppers Month and the Waterloo Regional Police Service would like to thank all of the volunteers and staff members who run the Waterloo Regional Crime Stoppers program.

Crime Stoppers is a not-for-profit community-based charity that encourages members of the community to assist their local police services in the fight against crime by providing information that may assist officers in identifying suspects and solving investigations.  

The theme for 2020 is "Creating Partnerships Against Crime." Waterloo Regional Police recognize that crime prevention is a shared responsibility between the police and the community and are reminding residents to report crime. Anyone observing or having knowledge of crime is encouraged to report it to police or Crime Stoppers.

Information can be provided to Crime Stoppers via telephone at 1-800-222-8477 or through their website at

Tipsters can also remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information provided leads to an arrest or charges. Crime Stoppers will NOT ask for your name, phone number, or address and will NOT ask you to appear in court.

Last year, Waterloo Regional Crime Stoppers received more than 1,700 tips from the community and approved more than $39,000 in cash rewards.

The Waterloo Regional Police Service thanks the community for their ongoing support, and proudly recognize the Waterloo Regional Crime Stoppers for their commitment and dedication in the fight against crime.
