Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers ACT

Crime Stoppers allows community members to provide anonymous information about criminal activity without being directly involved in the investigation process. You could be eligible for a reward of up to $1000 if the information you report results in an arrest and prosecution.

How you can help

If you have information about illegal activity or suspected perpetrators relating to crime anywhere in Australia, you can help by providing information to Crime Stoppers. To report information, phone the toll free number on 1800 333 000, or via the online reporting form.

If it is an emergency call Triple Zero (000), or if you require police assistance call 131 444.

Why we need your help

Forensic science and investigative skills are vital tools for police, but it may not be enough to solve the crime. Information reported to Crime Stoppers from the public can effectively be the missing link police need to solve an investigation.

What to report

Every piece of information is important. It may seem insignificant to you but it could prove vital to an investigation, arrest and prosecution.

To make sure your report counts, try and include the following information:

  • number of people involved
  • what you saw them doing
  • gender
  • hair colour and style
  • approximate height
  • complexion
  • build
  • approximate age
  • clothing
  • vehicle registration number
  • vehicle colour and type
  • vehicle make
  • any distinguishing features of a person/s or vehicle/s
  • time
  • location.
