What is Crime Stoppers?

To put it simply, Crime Stoppers is one step of a three part approach to solving the crime problem. Crime Stoppers relies on cooperation between the police, the media, and the general community to provide a flow of information about crime and criminals.

~ Important Notice ~ 

Crime Stoppers does not take tips from victims of crime. If you are the victim of a crime and you wish to supply information please report your matter directly to:

Windsor Police Service at (519) 258-6111

LaSalle Police Service at (519) 969-5210

OPP at (888) 310-1122

If this is an emergency and you need a police officer immediately please call 9-1-1.Do not use the online tip submission system.

Disclaimer: By providing information that Crime Stoppers will share with law enforcement agencies, you are providing an important and valuable public service. We understand that disclosure of your identity might put you at risk. We do everything we can to protect your anonymity. However, that anonymity may be open to challenge in the following situations:

  • A call to Crime Stoppers made with the intention of “furthering criminal activity or interfering with the administration of justice”. A party who is guilty of a crime cannot use Crime Stoppers to try to divert the blame onto someone else. Crime Stoppers cannot be used to try to “frame” an innocent person.

  • There is evidence that disclosure of some or all of a tip is necessary to establish someone’s innocence.

  • A tipster having received the benefit of full legal advice may, for his or her own reasons, elect to waive the privilege.

For a fuller explanation of these principles, help us to help you by reading and understanding the “Tipster Information” on the Canadian Crime Stoppers website.
