What is Crime Stoppers?

Crime Stoppers is a community based initiative which encourages all members of the public to provide information on

  • People wanted by police
  • Unsolved crimes and future 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 to report an emergency, call Triple Zero (000).

If you are the victim of a crime, other than in life threatening or time critical emergency situations, contact the Police Assistance Line 131 444.

Crime Stoppers plays an important role in fighting crime. Since 1989 community information to Crime Stoppers has contributed to:

  • 4,751 arrests
  • More than 16,000 charges
  • Over $25 million worth of stolen property recovered
  • Over $195 million worth of drugs seized
  • 84 homicides, 245 assaults, 286 armed robberies and 1,022 fraud cases have been solved.

The success of Crime Stoppers relies on you, so save the Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 number into your mobile, home and business phones, and help save the day. Remember, don't fight crime without it!
