Cayman Crime Stoppers recently donated 50 sets of 500 business cards to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service that officers will hand out to people in attempts to encourage information-sharing about crimes.
The cards include the standard RCIPS business card format on one side and contact information for Cayman Crime Stoppers on the other.
Crime Stoppers became involved with this project last year after its board approached the RCIPS with the offer of providing business cards to senior and community officers.
“The goal was to both strengthen our relationship with the RCIPS by providing them with business cards that they may not otherwise have the funds to obtain, while providing an opportunity to place the Crime Stoppers tip line information into the hands of potential tipsters as the cards were given out to the public,” said Malcolm Ellis, Crime Stoppers board chairman.
This was the second batch of 50 sets to supplement the batch supplied to police in 2010. The board intends to continue the programme each year.
The business cards were distributed to the community officers who have the most direct interaction with the public.
“Cayman Crime Stoppers is committed to supporting the RCIPS in their efforts to fight crime in the Cayman Islands,” Mr. Ellis said. “We take every opportunity to promote the use of our anonymous tip line at 800-TIPS (800-8477) or our online tip system at www.crimestoppers.ky.”
