January Is Crime Stoppers Month In Muskoka
January is Crime Stoppers Month and flags are being raised at municipalities throughout the district.
Since 1987, Crime Stoppers Simcoe-Dufferin-Muskoka has grown to service a vast geographical area, encompassing 110,217 square kilometres and 534,203 residents.
Crime Stoppers is a civilian, volunteer based crime fighting program which provides a way for the public to anonymously report information about crimes and criminals to the police.
Police Coordinator Leslie Woodley says they continue to look for volunteers in the Bracebridge, Huntsville and Gravenhurst area to give the program a greater presence in Muskoka.
“We would like to increase awareness and educate the community about Crime Stoppers and how the program really works,” she said
