Would you say something about a crime or extreme criminal behaviour if no-one knew the information came from you?
If you have information about crime or extreme criminal behaviour, pass it on to Crimestoppers anonymously and help create a safer New Zealand.
YOUR IDENTITY IS SAFE
You can do something about crime
Are you worried about what might happen if you talk to the police about what you know? Maybe you’ve seen or heard something about a crime but don’t know what to do. Are you scared to come forward and be a witness? Would you say something if no-one knew it was you?
If you feel like this, it’s easy to think there is nothing you can do. That’s where Crimestoppers can help.
Our independent charity provides a unique service to help you speak up. Tell us what you know, not who you are.
We don’t record any personal details about you. We simply pass on the information and protect your identity.
Your information makes a difference. It can help solve existing investigations or bring to light unknown criminal activity.
HOW TO GIVE US INFORMATION
Call 0800 555 111 any time to talk to one of our experienced call takers. We will ask questions about the crime you have information on but will never ask questions about you.
Talking things through helps you provide the full picture and makes sure the best use can be made of your information. It’s a good idea to ring when you’ve got time to talk and won’t be disturbed.
We do not trace calls and destroy all records of any caller after passing our report to the relevant authority.
"Calls to Crimestoppers are free and don’t show up on a phone bill."
Don’t use Skype or Internet calling services
As the anonymity of our callers is vital, please do not use Skype and internet calling services to call us.
This is because we cannot guarantee your anonymity – other users on your computer may be able to find out you’ve called Crimestoppers and it’s possible your computer could be located by its IP address.
You can fill in our secure report form to give information online. We’ve provided some questions to help you tell us everything you know.
The information will be sent over a secure internet connection which makes sure you, and your computer, are anonymous.
If English isn’t your first language
Currently Crimestoppers only takes calls in English. If English isn’t your first language and you don’t want to make a phone call, try writing in English on the report form.
Please note: Our aim is to develop a multiple language platform on stage two of our website developments in late 2019 or 2020.
This will be fast-tracked if dedicated funding can be located.
