How to give information

You can give information to Crimestoppers in two ways at any time of the day or night – either call us on 0800 555 111 or use our secure online form.

By phone

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 you won’t be disturbed.

We will never attempt to trace or record your call – not even for quality control or monitoring purposes. If you are at all concerned use a phone box – it’s free.

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 Giving Information 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 the phone call, try writing in English on the Giving Information Form.
