Crime Stoppers Antigua and Barbuda has been awarded the prestigious Gary Murphy Global Service Award.

Crime Stoppers Antigua and Barbuda is being recognized as a recently established program that has achieved proficiency with its partnership with Law enforcement and the media.

More so, Antigua and Barbuda is being recognized for re-launching a program which was dormant for over five years, during the most difficult period of the pandemic.

Neil Forrester, Chairman of Crime Stoppers Antigua and Barbuda remarked that “being recognized in this way is a huge honor for all of us at Crime Stoppers Antigua and Barbuda. We know very well that our work within our community and the continued growth of our partnership with the Police Force has only just begun.  We are looking forward to continuing to support our community and building the trust needed to continue to advance Crime Stoppers Antigua and Barbuda.”

Crime Stoppers Antigua and Barbuda exists today because of the partnership forged between the Civilian Board of Directors of Crime Stoppers, the Royal Police Force and all media partners.

Mr. Forrester went on to explain that “Our program can only be sustained with the support of our corporate partners. We wish to again thank all the companies that have come onboard to support us. We are looking forward to their continued support along with new partners to help us spread the word about Crime Stoppers Antigua and Barbuda.”
