Crime Stoppers: 1,945 Tips Submitted to Date

Crime prevention is up to all of us, and thanks to you, the community, we are seeing a reduction in crime. Please continue to speak up. If you know something, say something and help get the criminals off our streets
St. Croix: On Oct. 11 about 7 a.m., a 29-year-old man was shot as he was getting ready to leave home for work. The victim said an unknown male wearing a white shirt, black pants and a cloth covering his face ran up to him and shot him once. If you were in the residential area of Barren Spot leading to Estate La Reine, and saw a male wearing clothing fitting the description, please tell us what you saw.

St. John: Police are urging the motoring public to come to a complete stop when they encounter a school bus dropping off or picking up students. If vehicles do not stop, they violate traffic laws and, more importantly, can injure an innocent child. If you see anyone passing a bus illegally, please call 911 immediately, providing as much information on the driver and the vehicle as possible. The safety of our school children is of utmost importance.

St. Thomas: On Oct. 4 a man was walking in the area of Jala Jala-Kronprindsen Gade when he heard several gunshots. The man then realized that he had been shot in the chest. Help put an end to these shootings by telling us what you know.
