Manitoba Crime Stoppers


Since the non-profit organization launched in July 1985, Manitoba Crime Stoppers has received 16,101 tips on criminal activities across the province, including in rural Manitoba. 

Crime Stoppers accepts anonymous tips online at  or though its online toll-free tip line at 1-800-222-8477, which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For emergencies, be sure to call 911. Tips submitted through the website are encrypted, and the phone line doesn’t have call display and is not traceable. 

The organization offers cash rewards of up to $2,000 if the tip leads to an arrest, charges, or the recovery of stolen property or illegal drugs. All costs and reward money comes from fundraising and donations since Crime Stoppers doesn’t receive government funding. 

Tipsters never have to give personal information, never have to identify themselves, never have to appear in court and will not be required to give a statement to police. Crime Stoppers provides all information to local police authorities.

To date, Manitoba Crime Stoppers has approved $232,088 in cash rewards. Tips have helped in 2,216 arrests and 2,306 cases being cleared. Thanks to information from tipsters, police have seized $34 million worth of drugs and recovered $8.6 million worth of stolen property. In addition, more than 41 weapons and eight vehicles have been recovered.
