“We want a safer Victoria and this is possible because of ongoing assistance from the Victorian public,” says Mr Burke. “Thank you for one million calls to Crime Stoppers Victoria.”
Every confidential call to Crime Stoppers Victoria has the potential to save lives and takes a step toward solving crimes.
Over the last 30 years, Crime Stoppers Victoria’s callers have helped solve thousands of cases, including the fatal hit and run of Melbourne man, Gordon Ibbs.
Following the tragic incident on Mother’s Day in 2015, the Victorian public was called to contact Crime Stoppers Victoria with any information.
It was through the remarkable contribution of the Victorian community that the offender was caught and justice could be brought to Gordon Ibbs and his family.
In celebration of one million calls, Crime Stoppers Victoria would like to thank the Victorian public, the Victoria Police, Ambassador George Halvagis and Crime Stoppers’ media partners for their ongoing support.
Looking to the future, Crime Stoppers Victoria CEO Erika Owens is confident that with the public’s help, Crime Stoppers will continue to make Victoria a safer place to live.
“Crime Stoppers Victoria thanks you for sharing information confidentially, taking action and trusting us with your one million calls,” says Ms Owens. “We look forward to celebrating more milestones and success stories with our incredible Victorians.”
