Student Crime Stoppers
Student Crime Stoppers – Do the right thing!
Student Crime Stoppers is a program that encourages students in High School, Community College or University who may have information about criminal activity, to call or submit a tip electronically, to N.B. Crime Stoppers.
N.B. Crime Stoppers wants your help in maintaining the safe environment which exists within all high schools and post-secondary institutions throughout New Brunswick.
Do the right thing! If you have information about a crime committed in your school, consider helping the victim, don’t let a bully get away with victimizing your school, or your community.
By calling Crime Stoppers on such crimes as theft, vandalism, drugs, weapons, or assault, you can take an active role in keeping your school safe.
Remember: Your information will be taken very seriously and in strict confidence. Your anonymity is guaranteed. You never have to give your name or testify in court. If your tip leads to an arrest, you become eligible for a cash award, if desired. Please be assured, N.B. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display or record any calls.

What is Student Crime Stoppers?
The Student Crime Stoppers program is designed to bring students, the community, and law enforcement together to prevent crimes at school, and create a safe learning environment. Students have the right to learn and live their daily lives without having their property stolen, being harassed, threatened, or assaulted. The program offers students a tool to stand up against crime without reprisal, retaliation or peer pressure through a confidential and anonymous tipsline. The program is designed to make the institution a safer place to learn and reduce crime in the schools and local community.
Student Crime Stoppers can serve as a foundation for those schools with students wishing to pursue a career in law enforcement. These students may create a Crime Stoppers group within their school to promote and support the objectives of this program. Some initiatives these students might undertake may include: having law enforcement guest speakers, organizing crime prevention events, planning safe student dances, making students more safety conscience regarding their laptops, iPods, cell phones, lockers, and personal belongings, and organizing fundraising events to fund projects that will make their school a safer place to learn. Those schools that currently have police presence or involvement can use the resources of Student Crime Stoppers to support their initiatives.
