How does Crimestoppers work?

Crimestoppers is not part of the police. It is an independent charity which members of the public can ring up if they want to report anything suspicious.  It is a way that people can help fight crime but still be anonymous.

When someone calls Crimestoppers they talk to a specially trained person. That person then passes the information to the police.  You will never be asked for any personal details. Crimestoppers will never ask for your name or trace your call.

 

How to contact Crimestoppers

Information can be given to Crimestoppers  by

- calling 0800 555 111. The telephone line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.        

-  or by filling out a secure online  ‘Giving information form’:
