Monday 15 May 2017 is National Crime Stoppers Day in Australia.
Crime Stoppers programs around the country will be reminding all Australians about the vital role they play in helping to create safer local communities. In 2016 alone, over 7,000 offenders were arrested because of community contact with the Crime Stoppers program in Australia.
As part of the day, Crime Stoppers has released a new animated video to inform Australians about how they can contact Crime Stoppers; that it’s an independent community organisation working in partnership with policing and other community agencies, where you can remain completely anonymous; and that every piece of information can help to solve and prevent crime.
“We don’t need to know who you are, just what you know about criminals and their illegal activities.”
Importantly, Crime Stoppers reminds everyone that we are here to gather information about suspicious or criminal activity. If you are a victim of a crime or you need the police (urgently or not) you should contact them directly, rather than Crime Stoppers.
Your Community. Your Call.
