Do I speak with a member of the Police when I call 1800 333 000?

No, you speak with a Crime Stoppers representative. You can ask to be contacted by the Police if you choose.

What do we do with your information?

After you have given us your information, it is checked over by Crime Stoppers operators to make sure nothing can identify you. The information is then passed across to the relevant Police Unit to investigate. 

Is my information confidential?

Yes. We only need your information to help solve crime, we don’t need your name or personal details. Your personal information is kept confidential and completely secure and your caller ID is not made available to operators nor recorded - unless information provided is a threat to national security.

However, if you wish to further assist any investigations, you can chose to leave your details. 

Telephone calls are never recorded, and all website and smartphone application reports are sanitised to remove identifying Internet Protocol addresses. 

Can I receive assistance with making a report?

Our reporting service is available to everyone.  We will work with you to ensure you are supported to make your report.

For further assistance making a report please contact the National Relay Service, or National Translating and Interpreting Service.

Do I get a reward for my information?

Crime Stoppers offer rewards in return for crime information leading to an arrest. Applications for a reward are submitted to the Crime Stoppers Board of Directors (in the relevant state/territory) and paid at their discretion. Recipients of rewards can remain anonymous.

The reward money is raised through donations and sponsorships raised in each state and territory.

Donations are fully tax-deductible click here to donate to Crime Stoppers Australia.
