Golf Tournament Cancelled

Due to COVID-19, Crime Stoppers of Haldimand & Norfolk has had to cancel our annual golf tournament, scheduled for August 13, 2020 at Cayuga golf course.

This was one of our major fundraisers for the year and its cancellation is a significant financial blow to the program.  While understanding the financial strain this pandemic has caused to individuals and the business community, we would welcome donations either through our website or by cheque/money order mailed to PO Box 66, Simcoe, ON  N3Y 4K8.

As a registered charity, tax receipts are issued on request.

We continue to serve Haldimand and Norfolk during these challenging times through receiving anonymous tip information regarding crime while enabling the tipster to be eligible for a cash reward.

Crime Stoppers Invites Students to Apply for Bursary

Crime Stoppers of Haldimand & Norfolk is now accepting applications for the annual Crime Stoppers William Robert Courtnage Community Service Bursary. Graduating secondary school students in Haldimand and Norfolk who are involved in their school’s Student Crime Stoppers program are encouraged to apply for one of two $1000 bursaries that are available.

“This bursary is designed to recognize the dedicated community service efforts of students who volunteer with the Student Crime Stoppers program and we encourage any eligible students to apply,” said Neil Unwin, Chairperson for Crime Stoppers of Haldimand & Norfolk.

Students can obtain a copy of the Crime Stoppers William Robert Courtnage Community Service Bursary through their school’s guidance department or by contacting the Crime Stoppers office. The deadline for applications for this year is March 1, 2019.

The bursary was created to honour the memory of the late Bill Courtnage who passed away in 1999. Courtnage was the founding chairperson for Crime Stoppers of Haldimand, Norfolk and Tillsonburg in 1988 and he enjoyed an exemplary career of community service including serving as a member of Hagersville Town Council, the Haldimand-Norfolk Police Commission, the Long Point Region Conservation Authority and Reeve of Hagersville,

Student Crime Stoppers is an “in-school,” crime prevention program that aims to reduce, prevent and solve crime and create a safer learning environment for students. Members of Student Crime Stoppers promote the “anonymous tips for cash” program within the school environment to ensure that fellow students are aware that Crime Stoppers is an option for getting involved.

Crime Stoppers gives people an anonymous, confidential way of getting information to authorities without ever having to get involved as a witness. Anonymous tips can be made by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at and cash rewards are offered for information that leads to an arrest or charge.

With the support of local media, police and community partners, Crime Stoppers of Haldimand & Norfolk has helped investigators to seize over $48 million worth of illegal narcotics and stolen property since inception in 1988.
