According to Ms. Cazabon, ‘Board statistics show that, since inception in 1988, over $50.7 million in illegal drugs have been recovered by police, thanks to anonymous tips received through Crime Stoppers’.

NNCS Police Coordinators point out that tips received have led police to the recovery of more than $1.5 million in illegal drugs this past year. Anonymous information also led to the arrest of 49 persons in 2013, bringing the total number to 1,518 since 1988.
NNCS Executive Director, Tracy Balen, reminds the public, ‘The non-profit organization is one of 1,200 programs in over 27 countries around the world that have received information leading to the seizure of more than $5.2 billion worth of drugs. ‘Crime Stoppers makes the world a safer place by helping to solve a crime, every 14 minutes, of every day, somewhere in the world’.
