Windsor & Essex County Crime Stoppers has recently distributed drug awareness posters, titled “Find the Fentanyl” throughout our community. These posters have been created specifically to highlight the dangers of Fentanyl and other opioids. 

In an effort to assist our police partners reduce the illegal use and trafficking of Fentanyl in our communities, Windsor and Essex County Crime Stoppers is again implementing a drug reduction strategy. 

The Windsor and Essex County Crime Stoppers board of directors are concerned about the accessibility of this drug in our community and how dangerous it is. The Board of Directors has authorized a $1000 Guaranteed Reward Campaign for July and August 2018. 

“Last year our campaign targeting Fentanyl proved to be successful and demonstrates the effectiveness of this anonymous reporting service,” advised Constable Kristina Gilboe, Windsor Police Service Coordinator for Crime Stoppers. 

The initiative will pay $1000 rewards for tips that lead to the arrest of an individual(s) responsible for trafficking Fentanyl in our community. The initiative will take place from now until August 31st, 2018. 

Anyone who has information on persons trafficking Fentanyl in Windsor and Essex County and wish to remain anonymous are asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 519-258-8477, or submit a tip online at www.catchcrooks.com.

Wow! 

Well, I will say that I am still not fully recovered from the amazing Bail or Jail 2018. It was fast, furious and fun! 

We are super excited to say that this year, by the generosity of our community, we hosted our best event in over 5 years! Thanks to our 19 arrestees, we were able to raised more than $22,000 towards Crime Stoppers programming. 

I would like to give a huge Thanks to Dianne as committee chair. Dianne spent countless hours working towards this event. Thanks to the committee as well. Many little details and the day of the event would not have gone as smoothly without your help. Thank you Lina, Ernie, Kris and Glen!

We are already hard at work planning next year to make it bigger and better than ever! 

Thanks so much again,

Tyler

Crime Stoppers Annual Event, Bail or Jail is just under 2 weeks away! 

Celebrating over 30 years, this event has evolved from a simple Telethon Style event, to live video trials, to the social media hosted style event that it is today.

Every Dollar Crime Stoppers raises goes towards the reduction of crime, public awareness of the program, and education of crime preventions in our local community.  We raise 100% of our funds through events like this, as we receive no government support.

The Bail or Jail event raises funds through donations by arresting your friends, family, neighbours, employers, or pretty much anyone you know. They are convicted of an offence and thrown in jail where they need to raise money to “Bail them Out”, but some people would rather pledge to “Keep’em in Jail”! We try to keep this event as entertaining as possible for our ‘Arrestees’ and for you. So we ask you to join us at Tecumseh Mall, May 10th.

Please check out http://bailjail.catchcrooks.com/  for full details!
