Crime Stoppers making strides
Forty-three people have been arrested because of tips which Crime Stoppers Barbados has given the Royal Barbados Police Force.
The agency made the disclosure yesterday, while saying it hoped it could help to achieve a higher number of cases being solved and a general reduction in crime.
Crime Stoppers said the police had been able to clear up 82 cases as a result of 745 tips which it had given the force.
Crime Stoppers is an international, non-profit community programme that is operational in 30 countries. Under its mandate, Crime Stoppers provides a mechanism for the public to give information on crime or criminal activity in a confidential and anonymous manner.
