Town of Gravenhurst Helps Promote Crime Stoppers Month

Gravenhurst, ON – Mayor Paul Kelly, Councillor’s Jo Morphy and John Gordon were on hand to welcome Leslie Woodley, police coordinator for Crime Stoppers Simcoe-Dufferin-Muskoka and Angie Shriner, Crime Stoppers office manager to Gravenhurst and highlight January as Crime Stoppers Awareness Month in Gravenhurst by raising the Crime Stoppers flag at Town Office.

“We are grateful of the work and volunteer efforts of Crime Stoppers in Gravenhurst and throughout Muskoka and encourage the public to continue to support and utilize this organization in the fight against crime. We all play an important role in keeping our community safe and a great place to live,” said Mayor Kelly.

Crime Stoppers is a civilian, volunteer based crime fighting program which provides a way for the public to anonymously report information about crimes and criminal activity to the police. Anonymous calls to Crime Stoppers of Simcoe-Dufferin-Muskoka have led to over 4,800 arrests and aided in the recovery of stolen property and seized illegal drugs. Crime Stoppers continues to be actively recruiting volunteer board members throughout the area to help carry out the work and fundraising efforts.  You can learn more by visiting their website at www.crimestopperssdm.com or share a crime related tip by calling 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS)
