“Is Crimestoppers Really Anonymous?”
23rd March 2023
This is a question we are often asked on social media. We are 100% anonymous. Always.
Crimestoppers is a charity
Our charity provides a way to give information about crime anonymously 24/7, 365 days a year. You can tell us what you know about a crime over the phone on 0800 555 111 or by filling in our online form. We will then pass this information on to the relevant authority or police force.
When sharing information with our team, useful details include: descriptions, timings, locations, car make, model and reg.
“If the information I give is passed on to the police, why tell Crimestoppers instead?”
We never ask for your personal details, just what you know about crime. This means, no police contact, no witness statement and no courts. Our charity is 35 years old this year and we have never broken our guarantee of anonymity. This empowers you to speak up, safe in the knowledge that no one will ever know you did.
“How do I give information?”
It takes less than five minutes to give information and you can call us, or fill in our online form in the language you’re most comfortable with. We have over 140 languages to choose from.
Call 0800 555 111 or fill in our online form.
Our guarantee of anonymity is what makes our charity so unique, and means we can empower people to speak up, and provide a trustworthy service. Online or over the phone, we’re here for you 24/7, 365 days a year.
