No, Crime Stoppers Yukon is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization. We coordinate with various law enforcement organizations (including the RCMP and First Nations Community Safety organizations) through our secure and anonymous tip line system.
You can submit a tip via the phone tip line, the secure online form, or the P3 mobile app. Your tip is forwarded to the relevant law enforcement agency where it is investigated. The P3 app’s secure encryption allows for some limited follow up if necessary.
If the information from your tip is deemed credible and helps law enforcement to solve a crime, then you may be eligible for a reward.
In Canada, tipsters are entitled to anonymity which includes protecting your identity as well as any information which might inherently reveal your identity. This is fundamental not only to Crime Stoppers but also to Canadian law.
When you provide a tip to Crime Stoppers, you are never asked for your name or other information. Your tip is assigned a code number to allow for follow up without compromising your anonymity. All online portals are completely secure (cannot trace your IP address) and the national phone tip line does not record calls or subscribe to call display or call trace.
If information from your tip is deemed credible and was used by law enforcement in solving a crime, you may be eligible for a reward. These rewards are recommended and approved by the Crime Stoppers Yukon board, after which arrangements are made for tipsters to collect their reward securely.
