Crimestoppers’ Shred It event rakes in $5,400

From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. April 24 volunteers from the Northern B.C. Crime Stoppers were at Prince George Senior Secondary for their annual Spring Shred It! Event. This event, which they hold annually in the fall and spring, helps to cover operating costs such as paying out tips and advertising.

“This event raised over $5,400 for Northern B.C. Crime Stoppers,” said Ron Polillo, vice-president of the Northern B.C. Crime Stoppers Association. “We are grateful for the community support and for the generous donations from Shred It and Mr. Mike’s Steakhouse. We are proud to serve the communities in Northern B.C. and look forward to continued events such as this one.”

A fully volunteer board formed Prince George Crime Stoppers Association in 1985 to serve the city of Prince George. In October of 2020, Prince George Crime Stoppers changed its name to Northern B.C. Crime Stoppers and now serves 30 communities in Northern B.C., from Williams Lake to the Yukon border and from Smithers to the Alberta border.

Crime Stoppers is a program that empowers regular people to fight back against crime. Anyone can submit an anonymous tip by using our tips line or website and if that tip leads to an arrest, the individual will receive a reward for their efforts.

If you have any information about a criminal offence, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477 or online at (English only). You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information that leads to an arrest or recovery of stolen property, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
