What is Crime Stoppers?

Crime Stoppers provides a telephone hotline and website for members of the community to provide anonymous information about criminal activity. This information is electronically sent to the police establishment nearest to where the crime is occurring for investigation.

Crime Stoppers - 1800 333 000 (Landline Toll Free).

If you need police to attend an address or you need immediate police assistance DO NOT PHONE CRIME STOPPERS.

What Crime Stoppers does...

Receives anonymous information about crime and allocates it to the most appropriate police group to respond to it.

Provides feedback on investigations to callers who can quote their code number. No code - no information.

What Crime Stoppers does not do...

What kind of information should callers provide?

It is not expected that callers put themselves at risk to obtain such details, but information which does not give police any facts - a person's name, address or vehicle registration - is of limited use.

It is important to remember that the information provided may lead to the accused person being taken into custody or their homes searched by the police. These are serious matters and obviously police need to make sure they can validate as much of the information as possible. Whilst the arrest of offenders is a pleasing result, the supply of intelligence data for dissemination is of equal value.
