We are an independent charity helping to find criminals and help solve crimes.
We run the anonymous 0800 555 111 phone number that you can call to pass on information about crime. Alternatively people can pass us information anonymously via this website, using our Giving Information Form.
Callers don't have to give their name or any personal information and calls cannot be traced. This means you won't need to appear in court or give a statement to the police.
We believe that people and their communities have the right to live without crime and without the fear of crime.
When crime does take place, we believe that anybody who knows those responsible should go to the police. However, many people who want to take action are close to the criminal and fear retribution. Crimestoppers offers them the secure means for them to get that information to the police, making their families and communities safer.
Last year we received 95,276 calls and online forms with useful information. As a result of this information:
- 8,097 criminals were arrested and charged.
- £22,340,328 worth of illegal drugs were seized.
- £7,723,373 worth of stolen goods were recovered.
Each month we'll be publishing success stories of crimes solved because of information given to Crimestoppers.
This month: Crimestoppers information gave a nickname and a description of an address of a man who was suspected of driving a vehicle involved in a fatal hit and run car accident. He has now been charged with causing death by dangerous driving, perverting the course of justice and other road traffic offences.
Fearless is our brand for young people. It introduces 11 to 16-year-olds to the concept of Crimestoppers by providing them with non-judgemental information about crime.
You can keep up to date with Crimestoppers using Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. We write Crimestoppers updates and about general crime news.
