Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers illicit drugs campaign

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.

Illicit drugs campaign

Crime Stoppers Australia are currently running a campaign to put organised crime and the illicit drug trade in the spotlight.

The focus of this campaign are those linked to the illicit drug trade, who often reach a point where they become concerned for their personal safety or that of their family and look for a way out.

We don't need to know who you are, just what you know.

Research shows drugs remain the number one crime of concern for Australians. Many families have been impacted by drugs, whether that’s losing a loved one or watching them struggle with addiction. Some have been a victim of violence, crime or experienced trauma and we are all impacted by the significant health and social costs to the community.

Crime Stoppers encourage everybody to be active in sharing what they know about the manufacture and supply of illicit drugs in Australia. The result of this community effort will disrupt the illicit drug trade, assist police and have an impact on the criminal supply chain in our country.

Contacting Crime Stoppers anonymously means the criminals will never know it was you who spoke up.

Report anonymously now.

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.
