Crime Stoppers International (CSI) recently hosted its 39th Annual Conference, Creating Alliances Against Crime, convening professionals in government, private industry, media, the public and law enforcement to address the challenges and opportunities that exist in fighting crime.

During the conference, CSI recognizes individuals, programs, activities and campaigns from around the world for excellence and for their contribution to the achievement of the CSI vision – to help stop, solve and prevent crime globally.

More than three dozen Crime Stopper delegates were honored during the president’s dinner on Oct. 31.

“Crime Stoppers success reflects hours of dedication to create and manage a system for citizens to report anonymously,” said CSI Chief Operating Officer Devrol Dupigny. “Each of the programs and individuals honored here work tirelessly to keep communities safe and put criminals behind bars.”

During the three-day conference, attendees discussed transnational crimes such as money laundering, cybercrime, human trafficking, smuggling and kidnapping and the trafficking of drugs, weapons, endangered species, body parts, toxic waste and nuclear material, and illicit goods. As criminal networks expand, they diversify activities to evade law enforcement often in plain sight of citizens.

Data shows that 70 per cent of the information Crime Stoppers receives and relays to law enforcement would not have been provided to law enforcement by any other means. This unique network solves a crime every 14 minutes, on average, somewhere in the world.
