Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington Program Coordinator Sarah Bowers-Peter is presented the five Crime Stoppers International Awards by Canadian Crime Stoppers President Dave Forster. The awards were accepted by Mr. Forster on behalf of CSGW at the annual conference, held this year in The Hague, Netherlands. CSGW received more awards than any other program at the conference.

“(CSGW) was the recipient of five Awards judged by an independent panel from submissions from 26 countries around the world. Each nomination was critiqued based on a specific set of criteria and compared with similar population groups worldwide,” said Forster.

“We are extremely happy, and proud, that CSGW has been recognized by Crime Stoppers International with these awards, but more importantly, we are happy that the communities we partner with share in these accomplishments,” stated Deryck West, Vice-Chair of the CSGW Board of Directors.

CSGW received the most awards of any program at the conference in 2018, upping the total from three last year. These awards mirror the awards presented at the provincial level in June.

“It is rewarding to be recognized for the work we are doing in the City of Guelph and the County of Wellington,” said Program Coordinator Sarah Bowers-Peter. “We will continue to do our best work, not for recognition, but to ensure the public has confidence in this program and our ability to help them solve crime in their community.”
