New online ways to report crime
Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers is now accepting anonymous tips through Twitter and Facebook.
As of Monday, Sept. 13, anyone with information on a case of criminal activity in the province can submit their information online.
The information will run to an outside server that will remove the sender’s IP address ( location), providing anonymity for submissions.
The Twitter account is available at twitter. com/ NFLDStopcrime.
All platforms are also available at www.nlcrimestoppers.com.
“ Newfoundland and Labrador Crime Stoppers went in this direction to remain both current and relevant,” stated provincial Crime Stoppers coordinator, Cpl. Steve Conohan, in an e-mail.
In addition to accepting tips, the Facebook page for Crime Stoppers will offer videos on topics such as: seniors fraud, elder abuse, cyberbullying, internet child luring and human trafficking.
