Board of Directors
A volunteer Board of Directors actively administers and is responsible for the program. The Calgary Crime Stoppers Association is a registered charitable organization and is responsible for raising funds, public awareness and the disbursements of rewards. The Board of Directors works closely with local law enforcement agencies and the media.
The board of directors of the Calgary Crime Stoppers Association is solely responsible for the overall operation of the program. The board’s main function is to ensure the program is being operated according to the established business practices of Crime Stoppers. Fund raising and public awareness are also key functions.
The Board of Directors thanks our sponsors, supporters and community partners.
As a registered charitable association the Calgary Crime Stoppers program relies on funding from a variety of community sources. Contributions from individuals, corporations, clubs, professional associations, and retailers keep the Crime Stoppers program operational. Many local businesses provide Crime Stoppers with goods and services in support of the program.

YOUR IDENTITY IS ALWAYS PROTECTED
YOU WILL NEVER BE ASKED TO REVEAL YOUR NAME
Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to Call Display. Your information will be taken in strictest confidence by a specially trained call taker…you will be asked NOT to give your name. Please provide as much information as possible.
The Crime Stoppers tip line, 1-800-222-8477, is staffed by trained personnel who receive, process and pass on tip information to the appropriate law enforcement agency to investigate. Callers are given a tip number, which is used in all subsequent calls. Callers are never asked to identify themselves or provide any personal information. It is the caller’s responsibility to call back for updates and instructions on how to claim a reward.
Another tool we employ to gather TIPS is through the use of the Internet. Citizens can contact Crime Stoppers through a “secure email” without giving up their anonymity. Updated software has been installed on the Calgary Crime Stoppers website allowing tipsters to simply click and fill in an electronic form which is then submitted to Crime Stoppers. Web Tips are completely anonymous through the use of MS SQL server technology.
Regardless of the method used to provide the information, the tipster will be asked to contact Crime Stoppers for updates on the tip. Tips that lead to an arrest, the recovery of stolen property or the seizure of illegal drugs may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.00. The amount of the reward is determined by the Board of Directors. Directions on how to collect your reward will be provided by Crime Stoppers and will be paid in such a way as to protect your anonymity.
