Greater Vancouver Crime Stoppers is a non profit community based crime solving program working in conjunction with the police, the media and the public to help make your community a safer place in which to live.
Perpetrators of gang violence, purse snatching and armed holdups are shown clearly alongside victims and witnesses whose identities has been blurred. What makes Crime Stoppers unique is that tipsters do not have to give their name or testify in court. There is no call display operating on the anonymous tip phone line 1-800-222-8477 or online tip site, www.solvecrime.ca.
