Prince George, BC: The Prince George Crime Stoppers Society would like to invite the residents of Prince George and surrounding communities to come out and help celebrate Crime Stopper Month and the very successful year the program had in 2015…
Last year our city hosted the 2015 BC Crime Stoppers Conference from April 30 to May 3. Approximately 150 delegates from over 20 Crime Stopper programs throughout British Columbia attended the conference at the Coast Inn of the North.
Guests and presenters were from all over North America and we’re happy to say the conference was a huge success!
In 2015, the Prince George Crime Stopper Program received 565 tips from the anonymous public. Those tips resulted in 28 arrests and almost $50,000 in seizures.
Here are more of our numbers:
PGCS continued our partnership with Shred-it Mobile Shedding Services to provide two opportunities for the public to shred their personal documents free of charge. Both these events were well received by the public and kept the shredding truck very busy.
Look for more of these events in 2016.
As part of Crime Stopper month, join us at one of these events to learn more about the program and to enter for a chance to win great prizes:
- We’ll be at the Prince George Cougars hockey game at CN Centre on Saturday January 9 as they take on the Victoria Royals. This is the first time we have attended a Cougar game to promote Crime Stopper Month, so be sure to stop by to say hello and to enter our draw to win a $50 Pine Centre Mall gift certificate;
- On Saturday January 23, we’ll be at the Northern Sport Centre cheering on the UNBC Timberwolves men’s and women’s basketball teams as they take on the University of BC – Okanagan Heat from Kelowna. The Heat have long been a rival for our T-Wolves, promising to make these great games.
