Crime Stoppers launch new website
Barbadians are truly becoming crime stoppers.
In the last three years civic-minded Bajans have, through their tips to Crime Stoppers Barbados, been responsible for solving more than 100 crimes.
This was revealed yesterday by Devrol Dupigny, executive director of Crime Stoppers Barbados.
In addition, local tipsters have led to the Royal Barbados Police Force’s making 57 arrests and 113 charges being laid through the 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 skeptical about their identities being leaked should they provide Crime Stoppers with information leading to arrests, charges or incarcerations. (BA)
