Have questions about who we are, what we do, and how we work? We’ve got the answers.
Is Crime Stoppers a police program?

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.

What happens when I submit a tip?

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.

How does Crime Stoppers guarantee tipster anonymity?

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.

How are rewards paid out?

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.

What is the P3 app?

P3 is a secure, third-party mobile app used by approximately 400 Crime Stoppers organizations around the world. The app is available for Apple and Android devices, and offers completely secure encryption for tip submissions and follow up.
