Crime does not pay, Crime Stoppers does

Monday, March 9th, 2015

With the increase in criminal activity across the country, residents are being encouraged to use Crime Stoppers as means of reporting crime anonymously. Crime Stoppers is a community-based service, which enables members of the general public to anonymously provide information about unsolved crimes, and to receive rewards of up to $1,000US when an arrest is made. Crime Stoppers has been working in Belize for several years now and has helped in the apprehension of many criminals.Crime Stoppers Signs Installation-10
The concept of Crime Stoppers is based on protecting witness’s identities. The names of person who share information with Crime Stoppers is not released to local authorities. If the information given leads to an arrest or the solution of a case, a compensation is given to the person. Any resident, whether in Belize or abroad, can utilize Crime Stoppers to give tips/information about any crime while remaining anonymous.
Crime Stoppers does not take the responsibilities of local police in investigate crimes, they simply serve as a vehicle for the public to provide information to the police. Once Crime Stoppers collects the information from the tipper, the same information collected is then passed on to the local police, and in many cases, the information helps to solve crimes.
The ability to remain anonymous ensures that persons providing information do not become victims of crime. Usually when a crime is committed, someone other than the criminal himself knows about the crime but is afraid to make a report to the police. Crime Stoppers allows anyone with information to make their report without any fear of being identified.
Everyone can help in the fight against crime by calling 0-800-922-TIPS (8477) and report any crime. To contact Crime Stoppers Belize directs call 501-607-1484 or email [email protected]
