Saskatoon Police have recently received a report of a suspicious call to a residence. The voice mail stated the caller was from Crime Stoppers. The voice mail told the home owner to be discreet, and provided a name the complainant was to ask for when they called back to that number.
If you receive a call to your home or cell where the caller states they are from Crime Stoppers this is a fraudulent call. At no point does Crime Stoppers solicit information directly from people. Crime Stoppers does not trace calls or have call display.
Crime Stoppers receives information from tipsters who call, text, or email the program themselves.
Saskatoon Crime Stoppers is a non profit organization and run by a board of volunteers from our community. The goal of Crime Stoppers is to provide tipsters with information on any crime a method of giving information anonymously.
If you have any information that could help investigators solve an unsolved crime, the number to call is 1-800-222-8477.
