NS crimestoppers number

You ARE guaranteed anonymity. IF someone from crimestoppers should ever ask for your name dont give it to them but call back another day. They are not supposed to ask for your name. You are given a number to collect the reward if, you so choose to collect.

The Big reward $150,000 through the govt' you are required to give a name to get that big reward, or at least part of it. I think people are getting the 2 confused.

This is an excellent reminder you guys.  It's too bad so much corruption in CBRM has caused so much distrust and fear, that people consider crimestoppers "a joke" about many things.  I do know it is on the level as far as local crime, drugs, etc. go,

 but when it comes to very serious crime in which powerful people are involved, folks in Cape Breton are not going to risk even an anonymous call.  I wish some of the "clean cops" would get together and take down the bad apples who have been untouchable for years.... then the police, and the province will get all the help they need to make Nova Scotia a model province.  It's heartbreaking to see good cops out there risking their lives every day, and the bad ones sitting back protected

I am at a loss its long over due to stand up to these criminal thugs wearing a badge! I am home often and am often pulled over , I guess they are trying to intimidate me? It is and will never work I studied the law, the criminal code of Canada and my rights.... When I have the solid facts to take them down watch and see I will!
I would never back down and cannot get my head around those that see and have facts not coming forward? I know the responses I will get to this but if you never stand up in my opinion your just as guilty!

I think all the tainted badges around here are expected to die before being "exposed" Blair.  I'm sure they convince their families it is for their sake/s;  but we know otherwise.  They are not trying to protect their pensions and savings for their families;  they are trying to protect themselves from the cons in Dorchester.  They are all counting on salvaging their souls with "death bed confessions".  I wonder what priest or theologist led them to believe that is possible.  All the donations in the basket at the churches, and all the money in Rome won't save them.  .... they are destined for hell in a handbasket.  At least we can stand before our maker when the time comes.  Those guys won't get past the spirits of those they harmed and killed.  I wish "Clayton's song" would hit the net, musicians, Sheldon Aucion and Jamie Foulds, summed it up for what it is.

Hi everyone, I see there are people here familiar with crime stoppers. How are the values of the rewards decided? Are they based on the seriousness of the charges laid against the person caught? The speediness of the capture?

The reason I ask is, I work with a fellow who wants the big $2,000 for the information he has. Apparently he knows where a person is hiding and that he plans to leave the province in about a week. He doesn't think it's worth his while to go through the process if he's only going to get $50. I tried to get him to tell me so I could just drop an email off etc. But he's still trying to profit from the info.

So long story short, this person is hiding and he's wanted for breach of probation and the probation was for drug and weapon possession. From what I was told he is facing 6 months in jail for his crimes then whatever they tack on for breach of probation. Does this qualify for a large reward and if it doesn't should I try to convince my co-worker that I "found out" it is a big reward in order to get this person off the streets?

Thanks for any info you guys can offer.

Dunno. No dog in the fight so it's rather easy for me to offer some general thoughts:

To me, Crime Stoppers was not set up simply so people could profit from the information they hold. No, to me it was set up to protect identity and to perhaps coax said information out of people by making it worth their while for the potential time they might have to give up in order to help. No doubt this sometimes seems like a raw deal for the person with the info. I'm hoping someone involved with Crime Stoppers can correct me if I am wrong.

Personally, I find it difficult to even think someone might worry more about the cash than they would about this person continuing a life of crime and about potential victims. And to me, that makes your co-worker culpable in any crimes this person commits while he sits and waits. But I guess some people have more the red side of their conscience speaking than the white - I know I wouldn't be able to live with that secret.

That brings up another point: perhaps your mate is talking to you because his conscience is bothering him? I'd suggest going to him with the above. You don't want to create potential trouble for yourself by dropping a dime to the cops on him...but then again you are obviously feeling conflicted in your own right, and he is the one who started that ball rolling for you. If "justice" is that important to you I would have a clear and concise conversation with the dude about his responsibilities. And you might also want to think about talking to the cops yourself. That has to be the least palatable of the options available but has to be considered - I know I wouldn't want to work with someone this dishonest. But that's me.

Good luck.

Thanks for the reply Nish, he isn't a "mate" just someone who works in the same building as me. He used to be a "bad ass" and doesn't mind telling people about it. So I guess he is just one of those people who brags about anything, even if it isn't an accomplishment.

After reading your post I want to turn both of them in now. There must be a law stating "if you know the whereabouts of a fugitive and keep quite, you're an accessory to whatever they do next" or something along those lines.

I'll talk to this fool at work and see if I can straighten his outlook a bit.

Thanks again.

We all know one...or perhaps several...of those. It's wise to keep it in mind.

It's an interesting moral dilemma you have. If I was in your shoes, considering what you've said about him above, I would be careful and use tact. Try reasoning with him. "50 bucks is 50 bucks more than you had in the morning" or "Hey, at least it's tax free" (I think...)

Not taking anything away from you, but I would be careful here. Morally and ethically it might be within your prerogative to say something to this dude, but it is not your fault nor is it your responsibility to calibrate his moral compass. I ain't scared of much but I do know that it's stupid to go kicking beehives.

As said, I think you have an interesting situation on your hands. I would always try tact first.

All good points, I was writing fairly brashly but in my workplace I would have to use sense and like you said, "hey 50 bucks is 50 bucks" I could use that as my mindset.

I'll see what I can do.
