Fort St. John’s Crime Stoppers Co-ordinator, Rick Ekkel, has been named co-ordinator of the year at Crime Stoppers’ annual provincial conference.

The locally-run Crime Stoppers branch helps police to solve crimes through cash rewards. As a volunteer co-ordinator, Ekkel was honoured by the nomination.

In the past year, Crime Stoppers in Fort St. John has grown to now include a number of the communities in Northeastern B.C. and changed its name to Northeast BC Crimestoppers.

As a volunteer organization, Ekkel runs the day-to-day operations of the organization.

In the past year, tips to Crime Stoppers locally have increased, especially online. Crime Stoppers has created an online form for information that is safe and secure, so the identity of tipsters remains anonymous. Anyone with a tip is asked to call 1-877-222-8477 or visit www.crimestoppersnebc.ca
