About Crime Stoppers:
Crime Stoppers is a community crime prevention organization that rewards anonymous tipsters while supporting law enforcement partners to solve and stop crime.
Since its inception in 1983, Crime Stoppers of Edmonton & Northern Alberta has provided an anonymous tip line for citizens to safely report crime or suspicious behavior.
Over 130,000 tips have come in since then, resulting in over 8,000 arrests, 5,700 charges laid and $89M in property, drugs and cash seized. To date, Crime Stoppers has authorized over $1.5M in rewards to thank the public for coming forward with these tips that are critical in solving crime.
Crime Stoppers is a strong, vibrant organization that partners with the Edmonton Police Service and the Alberta RCMP but relies entirely on the public’s financial support; this invaluable resource would not exist without the generous support of individuals and businesses in the region.
Interested individuals can apply by:
