Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers was launched yesterday.

You can use it to report crime through their website or by calling 0800 555 111. They don’t record the call, want your name or details – just information on the crime and who is responsible.

The organisation is an independent charity, based on the UK one set up by Lord Ashcroft, who has also donated to the NZ one.

In the last year, the UK crime stoppers achieved:

  • 91,649 arrests and charges from 1,060,047 actionable calls
  • 106 million pounds of goods recovered
  • 167 million pounds fo drugs seized
  • One person every four days charged with murder as a result of information provided
  • Contributes to solving of one in five murders in London

Now the UK has 15 times our population, but that still suggests it should prove a useful contributor to the fight against crime.
