Crimestoppers understands that it can be difficult to come forward with information. You might have seen or heard something about a crime but don't know what to do or are scared to speak up. It's easy to think there is nothing you can do, but our charity offers you a safe and anonymous way to do this - by phone and online, 24/7, 365 days a year.
If you don't speak English or if English is not your first language, you can still give Crimestoppers information anonymously using a translation service. Your call will be answered by someone who speaks English, and you will need to tell them which language you speak.
Crimestoppers service is unique and designed to protect your identity, whether you call on 0800 555 111 or submit our anonymous online form.
You will not be asked to reveal your name or any personal details.
We will listen to any information you have on a crime.
Your call will not be recorded.
We have no caller line display, no 1471 facility and have never traced a call.
Online reports have the same level of anonymity as phone calls.
Our specially trained call agents will support you through the process and make sure your report contains no information that could identify you.
We do not make a note of gender, accents, apparent age or ethnicity of any caller.
Even if you give personal details, they will not be recorded, and we will pass information to the relevant authority without revealing your identity.
Crimestoppers is an independent charity that gives you the power to speak up and stop crime, 100% anonymously.
