The importance of Crime Stoppers Anonymous
The only way anybody will know you contacted us is if you tell somebody.
Anonymity is extremely important to our service. It is vital to Crime Stoppers Anonymous that the service is trusted by the public. If a caller was identified, that trust would be broken and it would be the end of the service.
As such, you have the freedom to report what you have seen or heard with no fear of reprisal. So much crime in the community is kept quiet, due to threats and intimidation. Witnesses know, or have heard much more, than they tell the police face-to-face.
Reporting anonymously is simple and removes the fear. It is clear that this service works too. Approximately 14 people are arrested and charged every day, thanks to information from anonymous callers to Crime Stoppers organisations around the world.
