Regional conferences

Crime Stoppers Bermuda attends annual international conferences, which provide an open platform for our key supporters, stakeholders and partners to engage with their local Board members and find out about upcoming regional activities and events. Key representatives from law enforcement, corporate partners and community groups take part in these events to engage in their fight against crime at all levels. Because, as you know, “Crime has no borders”.

Crime Watch Campaigns

The Crime Stoppers Bermuda Crime Watch campaigns were created to bring awareness to the general public and to visitors to Bermuda. The key messages are for people to not only be more aware of their surroundings in relation to robberies, drug smuggling, and other criminal activities, but to appeal to the general public to use the Crime Stoppers Bermuda telephone number and, increasingly, the website, to pass on information regarding crimes they have witnessed, have knowledge of or that may have taken place.

Crime Watch Streets (October 2009)

In wanting to modernise it’s approach and appear more realistic, the Crime Watch Streets campaign used real-life photography of Front Street, with superimposed images of ‘thieves’ taken from stock photography. The focus was to take care of your belongings on your person.

Crime Watch Cruise Ships (June 2010)

In an attempt to quell a rising number of drug and gun smuggling operations taking place on board visiting cruise ships, Crime Stoppers appealed to passengers and crew to provide information in exchange for rewards. The concept of ‘tips’ fitted in well with service industry terminology.

Gun Campaigns

A relatively new phenomenon of gun crimes started to appear in Bermuda in 2009, which prompted Crime Stoppers Bermuda to take a more explicit tack on appealing to the community to provide information on the crimes that had taken place. Up until this point, Crime Stoppers Bermuda had always taken a fairly soft approach in asking target audiences to phone in anonymously.

Stop the Madness (March 2010)

In the first of the gun campaigns, because this new gun crime wave was so shocking, several members of the business community donated a total of $100,000 in rewards, specifically for information received relating to gun crimes.

Pick up the Phone (July 2010)

With no end in sight to the gun crimes of the early part of the year and, in preparation for a press conference with the Bermuda Police Service, Crime Stoppers Bermuda appealed, this time directly, to the perpetrators of the gun crimes.

Release your voice (September 2010)

As the Crime Stoppers campaigns were becoming more edgy in in their look to appeal to the younger audiences after the continuing spate of gun crimes in 2010, artist AS Design created this poster. The ad spoke directly to young female adults who might know of any information surrounding the gun crimes that had taken place or were potentially going to take place.

Bury Heads in Sand (August 2011)

There seemed to be no immediate resolution to the gun crimes that were continuing through to the summer of 2011, and as all of the victims had been young black males, a number of people felt that many in the community were ‘burying their heads’ as they felt the crimes had nothing to do with them. Crime Stoppers decided that an appeal to the community directly in the hope that more people would realise that these gun crimes did, indeed, affect all of us and that we should work together to put an end to this travesty.
Campaign essentials: Newspaper, Radio, Posters, Direct Mail Postcards (island-wide)
