If you provide authorities with information about a crime you remain anonymous – criminals don’t.
That’s the new slogan being touted by Crime Stoppers, which Thursday unveiled a new campaign to coincide with its 25-year anniversary in the Metro Vancouver region.
The message is especially timely given the recent rash of deadly gang violence, which has police pleading for witnesses to come forward with tips and information.
“The new campaign will … reassure people that their anonymity is secured if they are still hesitant to contact us with their tips,” said John Ashbridge, a member of the Greater Vancouver Crime Stoppers Board of Directors.
“Crime Stoppers just wants information about the criminal.”
