What is Waterloo Regional Crime Stoppers?  

 not-for-profit community-based charity that brings together the cooperative efforts of the police, the media and the community in the fight against crime

  • Financed through personal, corporate & service club donations
  • Encourages the public to submit tips on crimes that have been committed, are being committed or are about to be committed
  • Pays up to $2000 per successful tip
  • Crime Stoppers will NOT ask for your name, phone number, or address and will NOT ask you to appear in court

Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.

Crime Stoppers provides a telephone number and Web Tip platform to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information that may be helpful to law enforcement agencies in their fight against crime.

Tipsters can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest or charges laid.

Crime Stoppers relies on volunteer Directors and tax-deductible contributions from the public in order to administer the program.

WRPS and Crime Stoppers Partner with Circle K Convenience Stores for Operation Freeze
July 08, 2021



Waterloo Region, Ontario – With summer well underway, youth in Waterloo Region will have the chance to be given a cool treat from the Waterloo Regional Police Service (WRPS). 

With the return of Operation Freeze, WRPS members will be on the lookout for youth demonstrating good behaviours and positive interactions. Once spotted, members will give the youth a cool treat coupon. These coupons can then be taken to any Circle K convenience store to be redeemed for a free Froster drink. 

“The youth are a very important part of the diverse makeup of Waterloo Region,” said Bryan Larkin, Chief of Police. “This is a great opportunity to partner with local businesses to engage our youth and recognize their positive contributions throughout Waterloo Region.”  

Officers will issue coupons to any young person they see doing a good deed, such as wearing a bike helmet, picking up garbage, or offering help to someone in need. The program is a way to acknowledge responsible and caring actions by Waterloo Region youth and build positive relationships between youth and the police. 

Operation Freeze is made possible through a partnership with Waterloo Region Crime Stoppers and Circe K convenience stores. 

The program will run until the end of summer.
