7-Eleven to Donate January & February Coin Box Donations to Crime Stoppers

The public is invited to make donations and all monies donated will be used to support Crime Stoppers programs in the province where the money is collected. 7- Eleven Canada and Crime Stoppers in Canada have a maintained a long-standing partnership in fostering safer communities . 

In 2014, thanks to the support of 7 Eleven store customers through the donation canister program, over $28,000.00 was collected and donated to local provincial Crime Stoppers programs. These funds are used to ensure that the Crime Stoppers 24/7 anonymous tip line is available for use by all citizens. 

Crime Stoppers is a volunteer-run program to support safe communities in Canada.  A Crime Stoppers Board of Directors is drawn from citizens in the community and this Board monitors local Crime Stoppers administrative activities, solicits and controls funding and determines reward payouts for successful Crime Stopper tips.  Municipal Police and the RCMP work cooperatively to manage Crime Stoppers policing issues.

Crime Stoppers allows citizens to ANONYMOUSLY supply investigators with information about a crime or potential crime for which they have knowledge without fear of reprisal. When a citizen becomes aware of criminal activity, he/she can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222- TIPS (8477) from anywhere in Canada and report what they know.  Tipsters can also provide information online through an encrypted tip taking system. Tipsters who contact Crime Stoppers are never identified. They never have to give a name or phone number.  They never have to testify in court. And tipsters could receive a cash reward of up to $2000 upon an arrest and charge.  Crime Stoppers is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you have information about a crime, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477

You will never have to give your name.

There is no call display or record of a Crime Stoppers phone call of any kind.
