There are over 1,200 local Crime Stoppers programs in more than 20 countries around the world. The Manitoba Crime Stoppers program serves the citizens of rural Manitoba, outside of the cities of Brandon and Winnipeg. Since 1985 Manitoba Crime Stoppers has partnered with communities, the media and police agencies, working together to solve crimes committed in rural Manitoba.

Every time a crime is committed, it affects us all! Your tips are a valuable tool in police investigations. In the past 25 years, Manitoba Crime Stoppers has received over 13,000 tips on criminal activities in this Province.

Manitoba Crime Stoppers provides you with an avenue to safely and anonymously share valuable information with police agencies about crime in your rural Manitoba community. You don’t have to reveal your identity to help solve crime.

We want your information, not your name.

Crime Stoppers tip lines are accessible 24/7, 365 days a year. All information gathered is passed along to local authorities. You can earn a cash reward of up to $2000.00 for information leading to an arrest, with the recovery of drugs, weapons, or stolen property. Your information helps to solve and deter crime and makes our communities safer.
