On January 11, Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers, Cambrian College’s School of Justice and the Cambrian College Criminal Justice Association (CCCJA) announced a new partnership that will engage students in crime prevention activities and initiatives that contribute to safety on campus and in the community. This partnership encourages closer collaboration between Cambrian’s School of Justice students, who volunteer to support Crime Stoppers’ initiatives, and it will bring a stronger representation by Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers to Cambrian’s Barrydowne campus.

The Cambrian College Criminal Justice Association, formed in 1987 by retired Professor Rod Fairey, is comprised of approximately 150 student volunteers from the Cambrian College School of Justice. The Association, which contributes between 2,500 and 4,000 volunteer hours towards College and community initiatives, provides members with the opportunity to gain volunteer and leadership experience. Close collaboration with Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers also offers students opportunities to develop valuable organizational skills and helps them to make meaningful contributions to their campus and local community.
On the same day, Greater Sudbury Mayor and Cambrian alumnus Brian Bigger proclaimed January as Crime Stoppers month in the city, and congratulated Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers on its 30th anniversary.
