Crime Stoppers Niagara is not just a community service organization that provides a system to anonymously report crimes after they happen.  They are in the Crime Prevention business too.
Gary Snider and Ernie Sibbet, of Crime Stoppers Niagara, joined our meeting this week to talk about their “Be Aware …. Take Care” campaign.   They are making people aware of the Frauds, Scams and Threats from con-artists that prey mainly on the elderly.

  • Fear of concern/emergency.
  • Fear of Authority and illegal activity.
