Peterborough Northumberland Crime Stoppers was incorporated in 1987 as Peterborough Crime Stoppers. At that time the Northumberland area was covered by a separate chapter. In 1998 the two chapters amalgamated to form our present program.
PNCS is dedicated to keeping our two counties a safe,vibrant place to live ,work and visit.To do so requires a committed effort by our community partners:the police, the public and the media.
PNCS is a registered non-profit charitable organization. We do not receive funding from any level of government or any police agency.It is an on going challenge to keep this program financially sound. This is accomplished through donations and a number of fund raising events through out the year.( Watch our Home Page for upcoming events!) .
