Education and Awareness Initiative in Partnership with Housing November 30, 2020
Unlike criminals, Crime Stoppers of Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma District Inc., wish to be noticed in the community. Crime Stoppers of Sault Ste. Marie and the District of Algoma partnered with Crime Stoppers programs including Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers earlier this year to launch a public awareness campaign with our housing partners.
During the campaign, Crime Stoppers has provided our partners with carabiners and other promotional material that they will distribute to new clients as they move into their housing. This initiative is reaching from Elliot Lake to Hornepayne and all the areas in between. Crime Stoppers will also work with our partners to provide presentations upon their request.
This initiative has a focus on creating new partnerships, educating the public, and ultimately preventing and solving crime in our community.
Crime Stoppers is currently working with Algoma District Services Administration Board, Garden River Housing Department, Sault Ste. Marie Housing Corporation, and Phoenix Rising Non Profit Homes and Women's Centre.
If you would like to partner with Crime Stoppers on our Education and Awareness Initiative please proceed to email email@example.com.

Tobacco Campaign January 31, 2020
Contraband Tobacco is a Growing Problem
Bracebridge - The Ontario Association of Crime Stoppers is announcing the launch of an awareness website about the growing problem of contraband tobacco. In Ontario one (1) in three (3) cigarettes are illegal.
The presence of contraband tobacco in Ontario:
undermines government efforts to reduce smoking rates,
profits from contraband tobacco are known to have a direct link to criminal activity, such as trafficking of drugs, purchasing of illegal weapons and funding other illicit activities,
results in a loss of government tax revenue estimated at about $800 million a year.
Information about contraband tobacco can be reported anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
Crime Stoppers is a partnership of the public, police, and media, which provides the community with a proactive program to anonymously assist in solving crime and contributing to an improved quality of life.
Information about crime and criminal activity is best reported to the police. Sometimes people are afraid to go to the police because they fear reprisal, have concern for their own safety, may be close to the criminal act but not involved. However, people still want to do the right thing. Crime Stoppers can be your voice. Your tip is anonymous. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display. Your anonymity is protected by Supreme Court of Canada case law.
Report information about contraband tobacco anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or submit a tip online at www.saultcrimestoppers.com (click the submit a tip above).
Crime Stoppers releases the statistics from December 2019. We want to share our successes with you. Stay tuned for a new stats video monthly. Hover on our logo in the top left corner and then click the red subscribe button!
