Our Board Members:
- Participate regularly in confidential Board meetings, functions, and committees.
- Understand and support the mission of the Crime Stoppers.
- Review and question, as appropriate, all minutes and reports submitted.
- Authorize reward payments and help raise funds for operational expenses and initiatives.
(Please note current law enforcement personnel cannot be considered, however retired or former members are welcome to apply).
Crime Stoppers is a charitable not-for-profit organization that allows tipsters to anonymously report information about crimes or suspicious behaviour through calling or submitting online. Information that leads to an arrest is eligible for a reward of up to $2000. 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.
