Research conducted by Crimestoppers confirms that nearly a fifth of the public have known about a crime, but chose not to talk to the police.

Some of the reasons for people not speaking out include:

  • I do not want to talk to the police
  • I need to report someone I know
  • I am worried that others will know if I speak out
  • I am not sure if what I know will help
  • I do not want to get involved with courts

Crimestoppers is a charity that allows you to report incidents with complete anonymity. If you have information that you’d like the police to know but prefer to stay anonymous, please contact Crimestoppers using the number below or click on the link to complete the online form.

Giving information anonymously | Crimestoppers (

After receiving your call or a completed anonymous online form, Crimestoppers create a report that brings together all the information you gave them, making sure it doesn't contain any information that could identify you.

Your report is sent to the relevant authority with the legal responsibility to investigate crimes, make arrests and charge people in order to bring them to justice. This could be your local police force or an agency such as the UK Border Agency or HM Revenue & Customs.
