Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce Plan Regional Classic Car Tours

Following up on the successes of the past three years, Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce have planned three activities for Classic Car owners throughout the summer of 2023. Members of the public are invited to all of these events for a walk down an automotive memory lane, but this show can also come to you. Each event starts with a tour around specified back roads and viewers can simply bring out the lawn chairs and watch the procession.

Crime Stoppers will host a 50/50 Draw at all events. There is no admission fee for any of these events but donations will be gratefully accepted by Crime Stoppers. Donations over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.

Crime Stoppers: A community crime fighting multiplier for over 35 years

Crime Stoppers is a community based program that combines members of the public, media, and police in a co-operative effort to solve crime. Crime Stoppers encourages people to call the toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) phone number or submit a secure Web Tip with information about any criminal activity in their communities. The information shared is forwarded anonymously to law enforcement investigators.

Crime Stoppers is a group of concerned citizens comprised of a Volunteer Board of Directors. This Board administers the program, controls and raises funds, and manages the payment of rewards to tipsters. Crime Stoppers is incorporated as a charitable organization and therefore all cash donations are tax deductible.

Citizens who supply tips will not be asked, or expected, to identify themselves, and they will not have to appear in court – Crime Stoppers call takers and the police will not know who you are.

To keep up to date on these events go to the Facebook page of Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce or the web page at crimestop-gb.org. You may also get much more information through the new TIPSTER Magazine, downloadable at the Crime Stoppers web page.
