Justice Minister Cliff Cullen announced on Monday March 9, 2020, that the province will be investing $180,000 in to a campaign to stop meth dealers and traffickers.
The three Crime Stoppers organizations at the serve Manitoba have been working together to develop a multimedia campaign to encourage people to report information about meth-related crimes.
The money will be used to help fund the campaign but also to expand cash awards to people who provide anonymous tips that result in meth-related arrests.
“Criminals dealing illicit drugs, and particularly meth, are a danger to all Manitobans,” said Cullen. “This partnership with Crime Stoppers will help ensure Manitobans with important information to share can feel safe making an anonymous report to better their community. We believe this campaign will clearly highlight why it is important to call the tip line and be a part of the solution.”
The money the province is investing comes from the Federal Proceeds of Crime Fund.
