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 7000 offenders were arrested because of community contact with the Crime Stoppers program in Australia.
As part of the day Crime Stoppers have released a new animated video which helps to inform Australians about the methods by which they can contact Crime Stoppers, the fact that Crime Stoppers is an independent community organisation working in partnership with policing and other community agencies, that you can remain anonymous or confidential when you contact Crime Stoppers 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 (urgent or not) you should contact the Police directly, rather than Crime Stoppers.
Your Community. Your Call.
