In an effort to assist our police partners in reducing the illegal use and trafficking of Fentanyl in our communities, Windsor and Essex County Crime Stoppers is implementing a drug-reduction strategy.

The initiative will pay a $1000 reward for tips received from now until June 30th, 2017 which lead to the arrest of an individual(s) responsible for trafficking Fentanyl.

Windsor Police Service, OPP, LaSalle Police Service and Amherstburg Police Service have a positive and collaborative partnership with Crime Stoppers with a common goal of providing enhanced community safety to the public. This strategy will offer citizens another tool to combat the extensive misuse of this dangerous drug.

In January 2017, Crime Stoppers launched a program in which local businesses can purchase a plaque with a commitment of paying $200 a year, over a 5 year period, totalling $1000 which is tax deductible.

A $1000 donation to the plaque program is directly supporting Crime Stoppers’ ability to fund these critical initiatives.

Crime Stoppers Vice President Mike Kelly had this to say about the strategy, “We have listened to the warnings from Windsor and Essex County Health Unit and our board felt it was imperative to ensure this initiative is offered in our community.”

Anyone with information in regards to a person(s) trafficking Fentanyl in the Windsor and Essex County area is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 519-258-8477, or submit a tip online at www.catchcrooks.com.

If you are interested in supporting the Crime Stoppers Fentanyl initiative by purchasing a plaque, please contact the Windsor and Essex County Crime Stoppers office.
