Did you witness a crime or do you have information that could help solve a crime? Échec au crime is a simple and sure way to share information about criminals or criminal activities anonymously.

Seven days a week, 24 hours a day, agents answer calls from the public and compile information provided through the organization's website.

That information is then forwarded to the appropriate police and partners to help them solve or prevent crimes.
