Who we are
Crime Stoppers Victoria is a not-for-profit organization helping to keep families and communities safe. We’ve been around since 1987 as a trusted service to collect crime information from the public and pass on to Victoria Police to help solve crime.
What we do
We work closely with Victoria Police to provide valuable information to help solve crime, relying on a close partnership with the community to make this happen. We have also played a significant role supporting Australians in times of crisis, helping identify missing persons and gathering community intelligence in events such as the Black Saturday bushfires and the Bali bombings. Crime Stoppers Victoria works with the Victorian Government, Federal Government, Victoria Police and other not-for-profit organizations in developing and delivering crime detection campaigns, as well as prevention and education programs on topics such as bushfire arson and youth violence.
How we’ve helped
Since 1987 our call center has received well over 789,000 calls from the community with information leading to charges and arrests. Every week Victoria Police arrests between 15 and 20 criminals, thanks to information supplied by the community.
Little bits of information can be crucial, so we ask that if you see something, to say something. How we are able to do it. Like all charitable organizations, we rely on donations from the public and support from companies and our media partners. Learn about our partners and how you can donate.
How we work with the police
We are not a department of Victoria Police, but we do work closely to pass your information on to them for investigation. Crime reports can be made by calling 1800 333 000 or by reporting online.
What we do with your information
After you have given us crime information, it is checked over by Crime Stoppers operators to make sure nothing can identify you. The information is then passed across to the relevant Victoria Police Unit to investigate. All of the information that you provide to us remains confidential.Donate to crime stoppers
