Crime Stoppers participated fully in the police caravans that took place between June and October this year. The caravans were a series of exhibitions in communities across Trinidad and Tobago where all 32 sections of the Police Service were showcased allowing police officers to meet with members of the community.

Crime Stoppers is a non-police, civilian run organization that anonymously receives information on criminal activity and then passes this to the relevant law enforcement authority. As a strategic partner of the Police Service therefore we were invited to be a part of these community caravans. At the launch of the caravans in June, Senior Supt Sharon Blake Clarke indicated that there was a greater need for the community and the police to work together to reduce criminal activity in our communities and hence the caravans will assist in bringing the police officers closer to the community.

Crime Stoppers shared information and distributed educational material with audiences in Port of Spain, San Fernando, Sangre Grande, Tobago and Chaguanas. Many persons wanted to find out more about Crime Stoppers’ guarantee that the Tipster always remains anonymous. Of course they were reminded that since Crime Stoppers began operating in Trinidad in 1999, the identity of no caller has been known. It’s safe, anonymous and it works.

Crime Stoppers congratulates the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service on this great initiative.
