Crime Stoppers Bermuda recently received the International Community Partnership Award during the Crime Stoppers International annual conference in Singapore.

A spokesperson said, “Crime Stoppers International has held its 2019 annual conference in Singapore with the theme ‘Cyber Crime – Partnership to Mitigate Cyber Threats’. The conference brings together all of the Crime Stoppers programs worldwide, law enforcement, government officials and researchers from all over the world for a symposium on best practice and emerging threats.

“The conference focused on how anonymous reporting can have a tremendous impact on local communities by ensuring confidentially when members of the public wish to report or prevent crime anonymously to their local law enforcement agencies.

“The three day conference heard from world renowned speakers on topics including, people trafficking, sexual abuse, cybercrime, wildlife trafficking and anti-money laundering.

“During the annual international conference three Crime Stoppers Bermuda Directors were in attendance and during the awards ceremony the Bermuda programme received the International Community Partnership Award for their inaugural Film Festival Weekend which was held in Bermuda during February 2018.”
