Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers began on January of 1986. It is a joint effort between the public, the media and the police. Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers was originally established by the Sarnia Police Commission who recruited members for the board of directors from the communities of Lambton County and promoted the program through the media
In 1997 the Ontario Provincial Police became involved and D/Cst Don Foley of the Ontario Provincial Police was recruited as the first full time OPP coordinator for the Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers. Officers from both departments have been seconded to the program over the last few years.
The present coordinator is Ret’d OPP Officer Todd Monaghan and the Liason Coordinator is Ret’d Constable Les Jones of the Sarnia Police Service.
