POLICY ON DATA RETENTION
Crimestoppers guarantees the anonymous foundation of all reports received through our information platforms and we will take all steps possible to remove any information that may identify the informant.
An informant can identify themselves if they knowingly do so but the default position (treating all informants as anonymous) will be applied where that position is unclear.
We will take preventative internal action to reduce the incidence of false reports but will not provide any individual details to the authorities regardless of the lack of truth or validity of any report.
The records of all reports made will be destroyed by Crimestoppers once forwarded.
