New policy at Thunder Bay Crimestoppers

THUNDER BAY – Hammarskjold High School was open for classes today. This broke a string of anonymous threats to the school which police stated last week are being made via the Thunder Bay Crimestoppers.

It appeared at the time that Crimestoppers in Thunder Bay didn’t have the same disclaimer on their website as Toronto Crimestoppers.

On Saturday NetNewsLedger reported on that issue.

Thunder Bay Crimestoppers has now amended its policy. That policy change now enables authorities to remove privacies from anyone who uses Crimestoppers to either commit a crime, to threaten anyone or anything. The new policy keeps the needed anonymity for anyone who is seeking to report criminal activity at the same time as it removes the ability of that protection from someone seeking to use the service to shield their criminal actions.
