What Is Crime Stoppers?

Peel Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers is a partnership with the public, police and media which provides the community with a proactive program to anonymously assist in solving crime and contributing to an improved quality of life.

Peel Crime Stoppers serves the areas of Brampton, Mississauga, Caledon and Pearson International Airport. It utilizes the investigative resources of Peel Regional Police, Ontario Provincial Police - Caledon detachment and Canadian Border Services Agency, as well as other partners.


How to Submit a Tip

Call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip on the Peel Crime Stoppers website.

If you are a victim of a crime, report it directly to Peel Regional Police. If the incident is an emergency, call 9-1-1.

How Crime Stoppers Works

Your information will be taken in strict confidence. You never have to give your name. You will be given a confidential code number, keep this number a secret. Crime Stoppers will then process the tip to go to the correct party.

Be sure to call back to 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) for an update. If your information leads to an arrest or charge, you will become eligible for a cash reward.

Cash rewards are distributed through pre-arranged locations across the region for pickup after approval by the Crime Stoppers board of directors.

Peel Crime Stoppers will forward the tip information to the appropriate police authorities. The Investigators will work hand-in-hand with the information, and will inform Peel Crime Stoppers on how the case is progressing. Therefore, it's important for the caller to call back for an update on the case.
