Crime Stoppers and Brisbane City Council join forces to combat crime


Keeping Brisbane Safe

Brisbane residents can learn more about how to keep their community safer by visiting displays promoting the Keeping Brisbane Safe community campaign.

Crime Stoppers and Brisbane City Council have joined forces to encourage residents to report crime information.

In 2016, 6111 anonymous reports were provided to Crime Stoppers from Brisbane residents, and these reports have already led to 217 offenders being arrested.

Crime Stoppers Queensland CEO Trevor O’Hara said crime inhibited the use of public amenities, negatively impacted property prices and made people feel unsafe in their communities.

“Reporting information about crime is something everyone can do and it’s anonymous,” Mr O’Hara said.

“The community witness a lot of daily activity around them and we can significantly increase community safety by reporting information to Crime Stoppers.”

“All it takes is a phone call to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, a visit to the website or by downloading the free app.”

The events, which will be held around Brisbane, will provide important and useful tips about how to help make a difference in the community by reporting crime for a safer and more liveable Brisbane.

Crime Stoppers Queensland and Brisbane City Council are working together to achieve the vision of a safe, liveable Brisbane through the ‘Keeping Brisbane Safe’ campaign.

See below for more information about the next events to be held.

There were a large number of people spoken to regarding the initiative and all were very interested. 

Microchipping Paddington (09/09/2017)

In a leafy park in Paddington, we attended a microchipping event. It was a beautiful day and while there were not the massive crowds we were used to, we were able to invest quality time sharing the importance of Keeping Brisbane Safe. There were many questions asked and answered and the understanding of those attending markedly increased due to the more time available to engage.

Emergency & Community Services Expo Shorncliffe (10/09/2017)

With an estimated 2,000 people in attendance the Crime Stoppers Volunteers were hopping around to speak with and survey the 200 people that they managed to catch.  As people at this event were there primarily to learn about safety on many levels, Crime Stoppers was a great support and source of information for many.

Carindale Green Heart Fair (10/09/2017)

After the huge numbers of people who attended our stand at the Green Heart Fair in Chermside, we were excited to attend another in Carindale.  It did not disappoint.  There were around 1,000 people and our volunteers were able to engage around 150 directly.  People were also very interested in learning about the natioanl firearms amnesty.

Nundah Village Festival (10/09/2017)

A busy weekend and Nundah capped it off.  There were several thousand people in attendance and were often lined up 3 deep at the Crime Stoppers stand.  People were cruising and happy to invest the time in learning more about keeping Brisbane safe, how the Council cares and how individuals can all support the police by calling Crime Stoppers with information.

Eagle Farm Markets (24/09/2017)

For anyone who has not visited the Eagle Farm Markets at Eagle Farm or at the new venue, Doomben Racecourse, you really must.  The variety of stalls, food and information is amazing.  Crime Stoppers was there on 24 September and we just loved the people and their community spirit and learning from Cr McLachlan the importance of safety in the Ward to him.  A great venue and day all around.

Ferny Grove Festival (07/10/2017)

The weather may have been damp, but that did not stop around 500 people visiting the Festival.  Cr Toomey commented on the great enthusiasm of those visiting.  With many rides and more stalls than you would imagine it was great.  Even the food tents covered ½ of the school playing fields.  A great day.

Darra Street Party (13/10/2017)

Although the weather threatened, this did not stop people attending this exciting annual event.  The large numbers of excellent food stalls coupled with many stalls providing a wide range of interesting information always guarantees success. The night was cool and people were keen to learn about the many successes of Crime Stoppers in the Centenary region.

Mandalay Jaranda Festival (21/10/2017)

The weather forced the cancellation of this wonderful event and there were many disappointed children.  We too were unhappy as we could not share our important message.  However, another event will be scheduled to replace this and you will be advised asap!

Halloween on Blackwood (29/10/2017)

This was an outstanding event and even the Councillors and Members of Parliament dressed up!  There were huge numbers of people, at least a third in costume, who all had time to chat and learn about Keeping Brisbane Safe. A truly fun night despite  a heavy rain shower!  Even that did not seem to dampen the spirits of those attending.

Sherwood Festival (10/11/2017)

Kuraby is one market you really need to see.  Great food as well as vegetable stalld. Tasty indeed.

Cr Shayne Sutton was welcomed and contributed to the interview process generously.
