WhyContactCrimestoppers

As an independent charity, we are not part of the police. When you contact us you won't be identified. The only person who knows you contacted us with information is you.

We know that it can be difficult to come forward with information. You might have seen or heard something about a crime but don't know what to do, or are scared to come forward. It's easy to think there is nothing you can do, but we offer you a safe way to do this.

Our statistics for 2014-15 show that around 14 people are arrested and charged every day thanks to the information we receive from the public - your information can make a difference.

How we can help you give information safely

Our service is unique and designed to protect your identity, whether you call us on 0800 555 111 or submit our Anonymous Online Form.

  • We will listen to you about any crime that you have information about.
  • We don’t record any personal details about you.
  • We pass information to the relevant authority without revealing your identity.
  • All of our call agents are trained to support you through the process.

In the 26 years that we have been running, no one has ever been identified after giving information. It is vital that we guarantee your anonymity because if your identity became known, our reputation would be seriously damaged.

Crimestoppers is not an emergency service and if you see a crime taking place you should ring 999 to report it immediately.
