WHAT DO WE DO 

WITH YOUR 

INFORMATION?

After your call or form submission, we create a report that brings together all the information you told us. Our call takers will check the report contains no information that might identify you.

The report we create from your information goes to the agency best suited to deal with it. This may result in action being taken or it could be added to a bigger intelligence picture for later use.

HOW WE CREATE A REPORT TO PROTECT OUR SOURCES

Creating a report:


After receiving your call or form we create a report that brings together all the information you told us. Our call takers will check the report contains no information that might identify you.

The report is sent to the relevant authority. This could be your local police or an agency such as Customs, Corrections or Immigration, depending on who has legal responsibility for dealing with the information you gave us.

 

If your information goes to the police:


Most information goes to the police. They have to thoroughly research the information you give us in order to act on it. This ensures information is correct and not given to us maliciously.

The police cannot get a search warrant or make an arrest based solely on anonymous information – there needs to be other intelligence that supports Crimestoppers’ information. The research they do on Crimestoppers’ information means they can use it with confidence.

Once the information has been researched, the police will allocate this to an appropriate officer or team to deal with. This could mean more research or action may be taken.

Nothing happened after I rang Crimestoppers. Why?


It may take some time for the police or other agency to act on the information you have given. There may be many reasons for this – the information may be crucial to a larger investigation and an action may take place much later on, or the information may remain on file helping to solve crime at a later date.

So even if you don’t see a quick resolution, don’t think your information hasn’t been of use to Crimestoppers.

SPEAK UP. IT'S ANONYMOUS!

Crimestoppers’ promise of anonymity has never been broken.

To give information anonymously to Crimestoppers now, call 0800 555 111 or fill out our secure, anonymous online report.
