Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers began in October of 1992 with one branch in the St. John’s area known as the North East Avalon Branch. Since that time, Crime Stoppers has expanded to its present day total of 10 branches which is spread out all over the island part of Newfoundland as well as one branch in Labrador. Crime Stoppers presently has in excess of 150 volunteers comprised of diverse, active and dedicated community representatives. Crime Stoppers provides a method for local law enforcement and other investigative agencies to receive information on crimes from anonymous tipsters. These efforts increase tips, which in turn increase arrests in our community.
