Message of Support: Crime Stoppers Month

Woodstock, ON (January 11, 2021) – The Woodstock Police Service would like to acknowledge and express appreciation for Crime Stoppers of Oxford Inc. in recognition of January being Crime Stoppers Month, with the theme of “Helping All Communities Stay Safe.”

Crime Stoppers of Oxford has been a vital resource for the Woodstock Police Service over the years and has had a hand in doing just that – helping our communities stay safe. The information provided by Crime Stoppers Tipsters has assisted in executing many investigations that have led to arrests, charges, and millions of dollars worth of drugs seized and stolen property recovered since the program began 30 years ago.

The Woodstock Police Service would like to thank all of the Crime Stoppers of Oxford board members and volunteers for the countless hours dedicated to maintaining operations and fundraising for the charitable program.

“As a police service, we rely heavily on our partnerships in the community.  We could not do our job without communication and information from the public.  Our local Crime Stoppers organization offers members of the community an opportunity to provide that information anonymously and they have been integral in solving hundreds of crimes in the City of Woodstock in recent years.” Chief Daryl Longworth, Woodstock Police Service

Anyone wishing to report information about a crime in Oxford County anonymously is encouraged to reach out to Crime Stoppers of Oxford at 519-421-TIPS (8477) or toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
