Your privacy is important to Crime Stoppers. This privacy statement provides information about the personal information that Crime Stoppers collects, and the ways in which Crime Stoppers uses that personal information.


Personal information collection

This website does not collect or use any information sent by your browser. The server logs are deleted on a regular basis and aren’t saved, read or analyzed by the administrators.
This website uses the same encryption as online banking for the exchange of information with your browser, meaning it is nearly impossible for anyone to read the information while in transit.
Please note that, while they can’t see the content, various network providers (such as your Internet Service Provider) do log (for routing and legal purposes) which websites and pages you are visiting.

If you decide to submit a tip, the information you wittingly submit will be stored, read and processed. However, at no time will you be required to provide personal information such as your name, postal address, phone number or email address.

Using personal information

Information that you may provide will be transmitted to the RCMP for their investigations. (Crime Stoppers does not conduct any investigation). Tips may be financially rewarded if they lead to an arrest.

Please note that tips aren’t accepted by e-mail; They only are accepted by phone, or through web form. The phone line does not have a caller-Id feature, again to respect the caller’s privacy. 

Securing your data

Crime Stoppers takes reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of any data. Crime Stoppers uses a secure third party data centre in Canada.

Updating this statement

Crime Stoppers may update this privacy policy by posting a new version on this website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are familiar with any changes.

This website contains links to other websites. Crime Stoppers is not responsible for the availability or the privacy policies or practices of any third party.
