Who we are
We’ve been around since 1988. Last year over 400,000 people trusted us to pass on their crime information safely and anonymously. By phone and online, 24/7, 365 days a year. We also share advice on how to protect the people you care about from crime, so everyone can feel safe.
People who know something about a crime need the power to speak up safely. Crimestoppers offers just that. At our charity, we won’t ask your name. Won’t judge. Just listen to what you know and pass it on for you. When you hang up the phone, or click send online, you’re done.
Around 14 people are arrested and charged every day as a result of information given to Crimestoppers. Since 1988 we’ve received over 1.8 million vital pieces of information, resulting in more than 140,000 arrests and charges. More than £135 million worth of stolen goods has been recovered and over £340 million worth of illegal drugs has been seized. In 2005, we launched the UK's Most Wanted which allows the public to see images online of suspected or convicted individuals and pass on their whereabouts. It has been highly successful, with over 4,000 arrests to date.
We’re so grateful for your support and we promise to use donations to provide safe, anonymous ways for anyone who wants to pass on information. Every year we help stop thousands of crimes. Together we can make communities and workplaces safer for us all. Speak up. Stop crime. Stay safe.
