About Crime Stoppers
Crime Stoppers Queensland is a registered charity and volunteer community organisation. Our purpose is to empower the community to provide information that supports the solving and prevention of crime. We have a vision of safer community, a safer Australia.
Crime Stoppers is Australia’s most trusted information receiving service for people wanting to share what they know about unsolved crimes and suspicious activity without saying who they are.
We were first established in 1989 and are a member of the Crime Stoppers Australia national collective of eight Crime Stopper organisations operating in every state and territory in Australia.
We work closely with police, media and the community to help solve, reduce and prevent crime by collecting information and passing on those details to police and other law enforcement agencies to help keep communities and families safe.
Our efforts encourage people to share what they know, especially for cross-border crimes such as illicit drug manufacture, importation and distribution, wanted fugitives and illegal firearms.
