About Us


Welcome to St.Thomas & Aylmer Crime Stoppers

The Crime Stoppers program in St. Thomas began in January 1989. In the years since inception, the St. Thomas program has grown to be one of the most successful Crime Stoppers programs in the region. Our statistics prove that Crime Stoppers works, but there is always room for improvement.

The board is made up of 15 volunteers and has a Chairperson, a Vice-Chairperson, a Secretary and a Treasurer. There is a Police Coordinator assigned from the St. Thomas detachment and a Police Liaison from the Aylmer detachment.

The purpose of the board is to raise funds that will be used as rewards to tipsters. The board also votes on rewards that are recommended to them by the Police Coordinator. The Police Coordinator acts as a liaison between the Police Department and the Crime Stoppers Board of Directors.

The greatest resource of information has yet to be tapped: the student population of St. Thomas and area.

Students know about everything there is to know about what goes on in St. Thomas or the county. If someone is dealing drugs in their area, they will know about it but nothing is said. There seems to be an unspoken rule about snitching. If they are singled out as a snitch, they are verbally harassed and sometimes physically abused. It’s no wonder they won’t tell. This is where Crime Stoppers comes in.
