Crimestoppers is an independent charity helping to find criminals and solve crimes.
It gives you the chance to give information anonymously either by phone or online. The simple piece of information you give could help police make an arrest.
Crimestoppers are not the police:
- you won’t have to give your name
- you won’t have to make a statement
- your call won’t be traced or recorded
- you’ll never have to go to court
- No one will ever have to know you called
- Crimestoppers want to know what you know NOT who you are
- Crimestoppers has never broken its guarantee of anonymity.
Information you give Crimestoppers will be passed on to the police but at no time will your personal details be asked for.
If the information you supply leads to an arrest and charge, you could get a cash reward of up to £1,000.
How do I contact Crimestoppers?
You can share information with Crimestoppers in two ways:
- by calling 0800 555 111 any time of day or night
- by filling in a secure ‘giving information’ form on the Crimestoppers website.
The form is completely secure. It’s designed to ensure your anonymity and means you can pass on vital information from home by answering a few simple questions.
Though Crimestoppers works closely with the police and other law enforcement agencies, it is independent and not attached to any police stations.
What happens when I call Crimestoppers?
When you call Crimestoppers you’ll speak to a specially trained person. They’ll take the information you give them, make sure it doesn’t contain anything that could identify you and pass it on to the police. At no time will your personal details be asked for.
