The volunteer-driven Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce have been getting a financial helping hand from across Bruce and Grey Counties.
The organization relies on fundraising and donations to be sustainable and, recently, Wal-Mart in Hanover and the Kincardine Legion helped by donating funds.
“Without communities and organizations helping us out, we would not be able to continue,” said Betty Bender, past-Chair of the Crime Stoppers Grey Bruce Board. “We receive little to no government funding and, even though we provide a direct service to police forces across the Province to help with crime solving, very few provide any financial assistance to our volunteer organization. So, we really appreciate these donations.”
Crime Stoppers programs across the Province track basic statistics to measure progress and changes. Below are the accumulated Stats for the Ontario Programs to the date shown
