Student Crime Stoppers is a program that encourages students in High School, College or University who have information about criminal activity, to call, text, or submit a tip online, to N.B. Crime Stoppers.
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 tips-line. 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 wanting 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 might 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, personal belongings and organize 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.

Campus Crime Stoppers: A Safer University is Your Call
All universities in New Brunswick are supporting N.B. Crime Stoppers by making their students and faculty more aware about the benefits of the Crime Stoppers program. Campus Crime Stoppers is designed to promote safety within the University community. The University of New Brunswick, St. Thomas University, Mount Allison University and Université de Moncton all support a safe, crime-free environment, and the Crime Stoppers program is another method students can use to report criminal activity anonymously.
All incoming students will be given information about N.B. Crime Stoppers and the methods they can use to report crime anonymously. Specially designed posters will be visible within the University community buildings as a reminder to students this program is available for their use, if necessary. The University Security Departments are very supportive of the partnership with N.B. Crime Stoppers as it reinforces existing safety programs.
