Our valued and dedicated volunteer team is the strength of Crime Stoppers of Simcoe-Dufferin-Muskoka. Citizens who join our locally focused committees participate in activities and events to promote public awareness and knowledge of the Crime Stoppers program, the Tip Line, and how we ensure anonymity. Committees meet once each month or as needed. Committee volunteers are encouraged to liaise with various leaders within their community to build relationships with all stakeholder groups.
Each committee is led by a Chair Person and has a representative who sits on the Board of Directors. Committees create and execute awareness and/or fund raising events that they feel reflect the personality and character of their local community.
Annual training seminars and conferences are available for volunteers to network with other Crime Stoppers program volunteers, develop new skills and concepts for event planning and hosting, as well as further their knowledge of the provincial, national and international initiatives being implemented across their regions and across the world.
Crime Stoppers of Simcoe-Dufferin-Muskoka committees are currently located in Barrie, Southern Georgian Bay (Midland and Penetanguishene), South Simcoe (Innisfil and Bradford), Dufferin (Orangeville), Muskoka, Georgian Triangle (Wasaga Beach and Collingwood), Orillia and Muskoka (Bracebridge, Gravenhurst and Huntsville) If you would like to join one of these we would welcome the opportunity to talk with you!
The Board of Directors is comprised of a cross-section of volunteers who govern the overall operations of Crime Stoppers. Reward payments are authorized by the Board of Directors. The Board creates and ensures adherence to Policy & Procedures as well as our By-Laws, and executes some fund raising events.
