How to give information?
You can contact Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or filling out our online Giving Information Form.
Call 0800 555 111 any time to talk to one of our experienced call handlers.
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. We do not have the facility to use 1471 to find your phone number. If you are at all concerned, reassure yourself by dialling 141 before 0800 555 111, which blocks your phone number. Or use a phone box – it's free.
Because Crimestoppers is an 0800 number, calls are free and don't show up on a BT or cable phone bill. Calls to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 are currently free from most existing mobile networks, including 3, BT Mobile, Fresh, O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Virgin and Vodafone. We have been told that calls will not appear on any of these bills.
If you don't speak English or if English is not your first language, you can still give us information anonymously via a translation service. Your call will be answered by someone who speaks English. You will need to tell them which language you speak. Have a look at our information in other languages.
Skype and internet calling services
We don't advise callers to use Skype, or other internet calling services, when they want to give information to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. This is because we cannot guarantee your anonymity - other users on your computer may be able to find out that you've called Crimestoppers and it's possible that your computer could be located by the IP address. As the anonymity of our callers is vital, please do not use Skype and internet calling services to call us. Instead, call 0800 555 111 using a landline or mobile phone, or fill out our anonymous online Giving Information Form, which is encrypted so that you cannot be traced.
You can fill in our anonymous online 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 to us over a secure internet connection which makes sure you, and your computer, are anonymous. Our call handlers read what you have sent us and will take out any information that might identify you before forwarding it to the relevant authorities.
Appeals for information about people being looked for by the police can be found in our Most Wanted section. You can give information to Crimestoppers on these appeals either by phone, 0800 555 111, or online - just select the 'Give information anonymously' button that appears on the left-hand side of every page, or click the button on the appeal page. If you call us on 0800 555 111, it helps us to have the appeal reference number, beginning CS.
Alternatively, the police may give a direct number you can contact them on if you are willing to give them a statement.
Remember that Crimestoppers is not part of the police service - we are an independent charity and we guarantee your anonymity when you call us on 0800 555 111 with information about crime.
