Crime Stoppers now helps to solve a crime every 14 minutes somewhere in the world.
What We Do
Crime Stoppers is a mechanism which is separate from the emergency police telephone number or other standard methods of contacting police, which allows a member of the community to provide information about criminal activity anonymously.
This allows a person to provide assistance to the authorities without being directly involved in the investigation process. Law enforcement authorities, especially the police, cannot solve many crimes on their own. Forensic science and investigative skills are necessary, but information from the public is critical.
Crime Stoppers recognises that someone other than criminals may have information about crime, and was developed to combat the public’s fear of reprisals, public apathy, and a reluctance to get involved.
