Anti-Gang and Illegal Gun Program
Gang violence and related criminal activities such as abduction, murder, drugs, weapons, money laundering and illegal guns continue plague British Columbia.
There are circumstances where people don’t want to get involved with the police directly out of concern that they may have to go to court or, if they reveal their identity, they may expose themselves or their families to acts of retaliation. Crime Stoppers provides a bridge that ensures anonymity while passing the information forward. Crime Stoppers provide an effective opportunity for anyone to help law enforcement solve crime and reduce gang violence.
Since the inception of this program, just over a year and a half ago, more than 108 arrests relating to gang or illegal guns have occurred because of Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers tips.
