Crime stoppers



Crimestoppers is a way of talking to the Police informally and without telling them who you are. Every day hundreds of ordinary citizens use the scheme to help the Police solve many crimes - not just the most serious. It is highly successful and proves that it is possible to do something to make society safer after all.

How does it work?

Phone any time at all on 0800 555 111. Your call is free from anywhere in the country and the officer you speak to will be understanding and helpful.
