They’ve also led police to clear 244 cases and make 266 arrests out of the approximate 3,000 tips received.

“Crime Stoppers is all about anonymity… it’s another way for the public to provide information to police when they’re afraid possibly of retribution from someone,” President of Northeast BC Crime Stoppers, Rick Ekkel said.

Mayor Lori Ackerman praised those who are “stepping up to the plate”, adding “I could put an RCMP officer on ever corner; something will happen half way down the block.”
