tudents in the Niagara Region play a key role in crime awareness, prevention and resolution. It is important to engage the youth consistently to ensure they have a vested interest in their quality of life.
All too often Students are hesitant to report crime because they fear social retribution. Crime Stoppers eliminates the fear of retaliation. The beauty of sending a tip to Crime Stoppers is no one will ever know who reported the crime and you never have to identify yourself or go to court.
Here are just some of the crimes affecting our Niagara Regional Youth:
Thefts and robberies
These are just a few of the issues faced by our youth. They face more and more adult issues in these modern times. Many of these issues are only now becoming a matter of pubic interest.
Remember- Any tip submitted is confidential and you will always remain anonymous.
In addition to our Crime Stoppers Tip Line, safety presentations are offered to students with an underlining message of good citizenship and keeping themselves safe, parents are presented with tools and tips for keeping their child safe and training is available to school staff and school-based law enforcement officers to assist in keeping students and schools safe.

Maybe you overhear someone bragging about having committed a crime. Maybe you know someone who is driving a stolen car...or is hiding from the police...or is a robber or drug dealer. Or maybe you just see something that doesn't look right. A strange car. A person acting sneaky. Someone with a gun or knife.
If you aren't sure that what you saw or heard is really a crime, call anyway. Let the police decide if it's worth investigating. It may be a piece of a clue to a big crime.
If you have any information to help us solve a crime, please call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) Your identity will remain anonymous!
