PROCLAMATION: Crime Stoppers Month
Crime Stoppers of Simcoe-Dufferin-Muskoka was established on January 12, 1987 and became incorporated as a non-profit charitable organization on February 11, 1987. The program is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors, who oversees all phases of the program; and
Crime Stoppers is not a Police program. The program is operated solely with monies generously donated from the private sector, businesses or raised through fundraising efforts of the volunteer Board of Directors and committee volunteers; and
Crime Stoppers is a program that benefits everyone in the community and in 2005 Crime Stoppers International was recognized by the United Nations as a global force in the fight against crime and terrorism; and
Crime Stoppers' mandate is to assist the Police in solving crimes thereby making our communities and schools safer. Through the media, the public is encouraged to call a province wide toll free number with any information about a crime that has occurred or is about to occur. If the information provided solves or prevents a crime, the anonymous caller is eligible for a cash reward.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim January 2021 as CRIME STOPPERS MONTH in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
The Crime Stoppers flag will be flown in front of the Town Finance Office at 61 Holland St. E.
