An anonymous Crime Stoppers tip has foiled a mass shooting plot at a Halifax, Nova Scotia shopping mall. This is an excellent example of why community led Crime Stoppers programs are valuable to community safety worldwide. This particular tip has been called ‘the most significant’ ever to prevent a crime in Canada by Ralph Page, the President of the Canadian Crime Stoppers Association.

A number of links will be shared in this post to reference and bookmark this case. Many volunteers work tirelessly for local, provincial, national and international Crime Stoppers programs. Often times, funding for the programs in Canada are scarce, and many programs have been threatened with shutting down due to financial hardship. Please remember that Crime Stoppers programs are registered charities that issue tax receipts for donations. The programs are community operated in partnership with the police and media to prevent and solve crime together. Please consider reaching out and donating generously to your local Crime Stoppers program.
