The Board of Directors of Prince George Crime Stoppers Society would like to thank the citizens of Prince George and surrounding areas for continuing to provide vital information that has led to arrests and seizures in 2017!  The Board would also like to thank the hard working and dedicated members of the RCMP in Prince George and neighbouring communities for continuing to support this worthwhile program.

There are two ways to submit a tip to Prince George Crime Stoppers anonymously 24/7 365 Days a year:
·         The traditional method of calling 1-800-222-8477 and providing information to a trained operator is still very popular. As an increasingly popular alternative, you can submit a typed tip via our website at  
When providing tips, please be as detailed as possible and remember we don't want your name, just your information!  All methods are completely anonymous!

As one of the 86 Crime Stopper programs throughout the country, Prince George Crime Stoppers is a proud partnership of the local media, police and residents of BC's northern capital.  Prince George Crime Stoppers is a not-for-profit society run independently of the police by everyday citizens like you!  All information received is anonymous and is provided to the police in the hopes it will further investigations and lead to arrests, seizures and recovered property.
