This is Crime Stoppers Month.
Dave Cockburn is the Chair of Crime Stoppers Simcoe-Dufferin-Muskoka.
He says proof the program works is since they started, over 7000 cases have been cleared and more than 4700 arrests have been made.
He says it is easy to get involved and get paid if your tip helps solve a crime.
A flag raising and celebration to proclaim January 2019 as Crime Stoppers Month will take place on Thursday (jan 10) in Innisfil and Bradford
