Barbadians are truly becoming crime stoppers. In the last three years, civic minded Bajans, through their tips to Crime Stoppers Barbados, have been responsible for the solving of more than 100 crimes.This was revealed today by Devrol Dupigny, Executive Director of Crime Stoppers Barbados. In addition, local tipsters have led to the Royal Barbados Police Force making 57 arrests and 113 charges being laid though 1 041 tips since Crime Stoppers was launched in Barbados three years go. According to Dupigny, the success rate has improved because Barbadians are no long skeptic about their identity being leaked should they provide Crime Stoppers with information that leads to persons being arrested, charged or incarcerated. Dupigny made the revelations while launching Crime Stoppers’ new website, and at the same time announcing that Barbados had been chosen as the venue for Crime Stoppers’ 34th annual training conference, which comes off at the Hilton Barbados from September 29 to October 2 next year.
