Crime Stoppers is a community-based program which began in NSW in 1989.

We collect information which may help police stop, solve or prevent a crime. Some people prefer not to become involved in a police investigation and therefore may not share what they know about a crime directly with police. Crime Stoppers welcomes that information without the person needing to give their name.

We encourage the public to share information about:

  • People wanted by police
  • Unsolved crimes
  • Crime that is being planned
  • People you know who have committed criminal offences where they have not been arrested
  • Suspicious or unusual activity

If you need an immediate police response, call 000.


What’s in it for you?

  • A safer community for NSW
  • Police and the community working together
  • A community that’s active in protecting itself
  • Personal satisfaction in doing the right thing



The Board of Crime Stoppers NSW oversees the program and approves reward payments of up to $1,000 if your information leads to an arrest.
