Cayman Crime Stoppers has begun distributing calling cards to the general public.
Produced in partnership with Cayman National, the cards carry the details necessary for members of the public to report a crime.
‘These calling cards are a really convenient method for everyone to keep the tips line number easily accessible,’ said Stuart Bostock, Cayman Crime Stoppers chairman.
‘Now more people are carrying the telephone number we expect to see yet more increases in the number of tips submitted.’
The cards may be found at any Cayman National retail branch and will also be issued directly to citizens by Royal Cayman Islands Police Service community beat officers.
Stuart Dack, president and chief executive officer of Cayman National, said: ‘Tackling crime is the foundation for keeping the Cayman Islands a safe place to live and do business. We are proud to support Cayman Crime Stoppers because we believe this responsibility is incumbent on all community members.’
At the top of the card, the message Remain Anonymous, reminds its holder that the callers’ personal details will never be taken by the call centre operators in Florida and that callers’ anonymity is guaranteed.
Tips may also be submitted online at www.crimestoppers.ky.
Persons are eligible for a $1,000 reward if their information leads to the successful resolution of a crime.
